The heat transfer coefficient, h, is defined as: h¼ Nukwater Dh ð3:22Þ where Dh is the hydraulic diameter (m). 3 Convective Heat Transfer in the Borehole The literature review regarding convective heat transfer correlations in annular spaces suggests that the difference between concentric pipe configurations and eccentric pipe configurations may not be significant.

This method, however, has intrinsic problems because of the dynamic behavior of the heat pump and the need for a heat source/sink, and should only be used where testing with extracting heat has to be done explicitly. Besides the Dutch test rig, there are at least two other heat pump systems, one in Germany and one in Sweden. A. 2 Operation of the Test The general layout of a TRT is shown in Fig. 9. For good results, it is crucial to set up the system correctly and to minimize external influences.
