Thermal Conductivity: Thermal Properties Of BHE

Good Essays
Thermal properties of BHE
The thermal properties of the ground are mainly determine by the minerals , water saturation and porosity. The thermal conductivity is depend upon porosity when the porosity increase thermal conductivity is gradually decrease due to that water and air are less conductive as compare to minerals, and on the other hand heat capacity increase with higher water content. During the installation of heat exchanger soil loss it structure due to drilling then the thermal conductivity is determined by mineral contain. The porosity of soil varies from place to place some kind of soil having less porosity but on the other hand some having high porosity like peat which consume water approximate 100%.
To sum up, the important factor of the variation of the thermal property during the storage cycle in the degree of water saturation. Change in water saturation occur in the unsaturated zone specially near to the ground water level. In permeable materials their may also be significant fluctuation in the ground water level.

In this analysis using of U shape BHE in different distance size of inlet and outlet pipe due to this the thermal resistance and relativity error are found. In this project I also used ansys program for analysis of inlet and outlet temperature of water in ground heat exchanger. The thermal properties of heat exchanger is changed due to it roughness of the pipe and it shows some error and it should be neglected only by cleaning of pipe in proper time. The flow rate of the exchanger is totally depend on the flow of pipe if the pipe having turbulent flow then the heat transfer is very low on the other hand if the pipe having laminar flow the heat transfer rate is higher. The thermal resistance is inversely proportional to the flow rate of heat

    This experimental study deduced that the temperature gradient destabilizes the free surface. This means that when the temperature gradients occur the substance tends to evaporate easily. This provokes a higher instability at the interface (which means a decrease in the surface tension). Also, depending on the alcohol studying, in this article, turbulence begins at the interface at different temperature gradients. The instability starts near the interface and causes a sinuous movement to the interface.…

    The pressure difference allows to determine the rate of fluid or discharging flow through the pipe line. Since the inlet venturi is larger than throat venturi, it leads the increasing of velocity at the throat, resulting in decrease of pressure. As a result, we can see the different level between the tubes, which means the pressure difference between the inlet and the throat of the venturi. . In our experiment, the lowest pressure was measured at manometer D where it’s the least cross sectional area at the point.…

    Sound energy is lost in porous materials when it is transformed into heat. This is caused by a combination of effects. Firstly, there are losses through the viscous effects between the solid matrix and the fluid when pressure waves causes the fluid to move longitudinally [3]. Secondly, pressure waves causes the skeletal structure…

    A change in the equilibrium between the soil surface and solution will cause exchange reactions. This can be referred to as a Le Chatelier’s Principle: if a change occurs to the equilibrium, the equilibrium will shift to counteract the effect. For example, the intake of Ca2+ onto the soil surface will cause H+ to be released into the soil solution so equilibrium is established again. As stated above, Calcium is a divalent cation, therefore, it is more strongly held than a monovalent cation. Therefore, being attracted to negative surfaces, the diffuse layer will be more compact, since the higher the charge, the more attraction.…

    Kinetic and potential energy can be converted into heat completely (Orr, Baker and Bent 2002). Consideration that the system is working under this situation continuously, there will be insufficient pressure because the pressure drops repeatedly after the area of semi blocked. In addition, the pressure drop will make the temperature gradually rises and at the end of system operation, the hot fluid will return and collect in the reservoir. However, this problem can be solved by replacing the filter, but it cannot be done prior to sure that problem by measure the pressure and flow rate before and after the filter in order to find out if the problem is there or not. If they show the different significant reading, that indicates to the problem, but if they are the same or similar, there is…

    [10] 2.3 Operating Principles of distillation: The basic principle of distillation is to bring a liquid into close contact with vapour so that the mass transfer between the two current phases can take place. The goal of each system to reach a state of equilibrium is based on the driving force for the mass transfer. [11] When the vapour pressure matches the surrounding pressure that’s when a liquid begins to boil. The principle on which a liquid boils depends on its volatility. Liquids with high vapour pressures will boil at lower temperatures.…

    Angular deviations exhibited by alterations in the two symmetrically-independent inter-tetrahedral Fe-O-P bridging angles, and the associated tilt angles are the main factors that cause thermal expansion, which means that the temperature dependence of thermal expansion is actually that of the angular deviations of θ and δ. This is depicted via the Landau-type…

    Any form of running water: whether rapids, ground water discharge, or anything that generates waves can cause aeration. As for man-made aeration, an air pump or a hand-turned waterwheel can dissolve oxygen into the source (Kemker). The affect these factors have on the water is entirely dependent on the solubility of the water, however. The solubility decreases as the temperature increases. This high temperature limits the amount of oxygen that can be…

    Even during the reaction, it would be decreasing in temperature this mean an average temperature would have to be determined by measuring the temperature before and after the reaction. However, the time taken to get the solution out the water bath and complete the procedure was different each time meaning some would’ve lost more heat then others, hence a different temperature was used for each trial, as can be seen in table 1.2. This would affect the rate of reaction and have a random effect, effecting…

    The results contrasted with the expected density of 1.03 g/mL. The standard deviation revealed that the uncertainty of G2 experiment was 1.19g/mL±0.03. On possible reason for error conducted in the experience could have been a loss of liquid during transfer of the G2 solution. The G2 solution was construct in a beaker because it needed to dissolve entirely, and in order to do so it could not done so in a graduated cylinder. The transferred G2 powder to the beaker, the transferred water in the graduated cylinder to the beaker, or the transferred G2 mixture to the graduated cylinder could have caused error in the experiment due to loss of substance through the movement.…
