WP9 – Papers published in the timeframe May-October 2017
Abstract: The current study examined the interpretation of thermal response testing measurements used to evaluate the equivalent ground thermal conductivity and thus to design the system.
Abstract: The Molinella test site (Italy) is the open-air laboratory of the UE project “Cheap-GSHPs.
Abstract: Direct measurements of gravel thermal properties are usually quite challenging to be performed in laboratory, due to the very coarse sediments size. As a consequence, the reference thermal values provided by literature for gravels are quite limited and dispersed.
Abstract: The Cheap-GSHPs EU project is shortly presented in the Italian Journal of Groundwater.
Abstract: The aim of this work is to analyze the thermal behavior of two historical buildings located in Italy, in Venice and Florence respectively. Detailed computer simulations of the buildings have been carried out by means of a transient calculation tool TRNSYS. Energy simulations of GSHP systems have been performed and a comparison with a common plant system using a gas boiler for heating and air-to-water chiller for cooling has been carried out.
