Abstract A fiber optic distributed thermal response test (DTRT) conducted in well-documented heterogeneous geology is combined with laboratory thermophysical measurements of cores and novel data analysis techniques to provide a detailed description of variability in subsurface heat transfer. The results of this study show that appreciable variation in subsurface heat flow exists and can be quantified in a lithological context, which may aid in the optimization of future geothermal borefield desi...

Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) is a technique that uses the interaction of laser pulses with silica to continuously sense temperature along the length of fiber-optic cables. The temporal and spatial resolution of DTS makes it an excellent technique for monitoring the performance of district-scale geothermal exchange borefields. A dynamic, double-ended calibration routine developed in response to site-specific challenges and constraints (i.e., more than 5 km, many splices, different fiber ...

Abstract Fiber optic (FO) distributed temperature sensing (DTS) was used for long-term monitoring of a 280-m by 360-m geothermal exchange borefield with 2596 boreholes to quantify the role of groundwater flow and thermophysical properties on subsurface heat transfer and storage. Most district-scale borefields are subject to a sustained imbalance in heating or cooling loads and experience yearly subsurface temperature increases that may, without corrective action, lead to diminished borefield per...

Abstract A thermal response test (TRT) is commonly conducted at a site proposed for the installation of a ground-coupled heat pump system. The purpose of the TRT is to gather local data to infer thermal properties of the soil. Accurately estimating soil thermal properties enables designers to size the geofield appropriately and supports improved simulations of ground heat exchanger (GHX) systems to better estimate the system performance over both shorter-term and longer-term intervals. This pape...
