A technique for the prediction of soil resistivity and ground rod resistance for deep ground electrodes has been developed. The method extrapolates limited test ground rod data to a factor of up to ten times the known depth values. The technique has been shown to accurately predict the effectiveness of installing deep ground electrodes and the predicted… (More)
