Advanced thermal test methodsParticipating Partners
In Subproject 1, the focus is on expanding well-known thermal test methods. The known thermal response test is to be further developed into a method for investigating the shallow geothermal source at the time of comminssioning of the entire system. The thermal test method for borehole heat exchangers is modified in this project in order to apply it to trench collectors In addition, short-time thermal test methods are developed for investigating the quality of the backfilling of borehole heat exchangers. These topics are examined in more detail in the following three subprojects.
