Basic Theory and Ground Properties

Part of the Green Energy and Technology book series (GREEN)


Deng (2004) introduced a theoretical background on underground thermal energy systems in his dissertation on standing column wells. The contents in this chapter are mainly based on Deng's (2004) dissertation.
