Natural groundwater flow can increase the efficiency of geothermal system. But groundwater flow is not available everywhere. A patented new idea is to use air injection well to create artificial flow in sandy or gritty soils. The governing equations of fluid flow and heat transfer problem were solved with the COMSOL’s Earth Science Module.

The results of two thermal response tests recently performed on two vertical borehole heat exchangers (BHEs) are presented. The BHEs have the same cross section and a depth of 100 m and 120 m respectively. The evaluation of the thermal properties of the ground and grout are performed by a finite-element simulation method, developed through the software package COMSOL Multiphysics 3.4.
