Abstract The mathematical model of a horizontal ground heat exchanger was presented. The model was based on a one-dimensional equation of the transient heat conduction with an internal source of heat. The model was correctly verified by comparison of computational results and experimental measurements presented in literature. Temporal changes of the ground surface temperature and rates of heat transferred from the ground to the working fluid and between the ground surface and the environment… CONTINUE READING
