Thermo-mechanical behaviour of energy piles

  title={Thermo-mechanical behaviour of energy piles},
  author={Bhasker Amatya and Kazuhito Soga and P. J. BOURNE-WEBB and Terence Charles Amis and Lyesse Laloui},
Energy piles are an effective and economic means of using geothermal energy resources for heating and cooling buildings, contributing to legislative requirements for renewable energy in new construction. While such piles have been used for around 25 years with no apparent detrimental effect, there is limited understanding of their thermo-mechanical behaviour. This paper synthesises the results from three published field studies and illustrates some of the engineering behaviour of such piles… CONTINUE READING
