Geological Considerations Before Installing Ground Source Heat Pump Systems

As the GSHP systems have relatively high installation costs, it is important that geological data and knowledge is available so that costs can be minimized. Furthermore, detailed geological information like surface and sub-surface temperature, thermal properties of the soil, water table, flow direction and type of soil etc. is also required for efficient design of the system.

Soil Suitability for Geothermal Heat Pumps (Closed-Loop Horizontal Residential)

Ground source heat pump systems provide a viable alternative to conventional heating and cooling systems in the move towards sustainable building solutions. The most important factor for successful operation of a ground loop heat system is the rate of heat transfer between the pipe and surrounding soil.

Effects of Earthquake on Unreinforced Masonry Buildings

For given direction of earthquake, wall A acts as a shear wall and B acts as flexure wall. If the walls are not tied together wall B overturn (out of plane) and wall A slides (in plane) and collapse occurs. Masonry units should be tied properly. Such type of failure was among the most common, resulting from out-of-plane vibration of the walls. As the wall bends

PreCast Concrete in Earthquake Regions

Based on experience in past earthquakes in Eastern European and in Central Asian countries where these systems have been widely used, it can be concluded that their seismic performance has been fairly satisfactory. when it comes to earthquake performance, the
