Snow melting system based on geothermal heat exchanger pile is an innovative technology that combines geothermal energy with structural foundation. It overcomes the problems of conventional chemical based snow melting in mitigating infrastructure corrosion and negative environmental effects. By integrating the underground heat exchanger into pile foundation that support the bridge structure, it effectively reduces the installation cost of geothermal system. This paper analyses the applicability… CONTINUE READING
