Investigation of temperature distribution in the ground induced by heat source and under natural conditions

   | May 29, 2020


This paper deals with theoretical and experimental analysis of heat transfer in the ground. Calculation results of heat transfer under natural conditions were presented. Temperature profiles in the ground were determined for cyclic steady state. Results of experimental studies conducted in laboratory setup were shown. Experimental studies were related to determination of temperature of the heated granular bed. The calculation and measurement results presented were used to determine a mathematical model of the ground heat exchanger.
