Monitor the parameters over time at the ITER test site

Why monitor the parameters over time? Monitor the parameters over time through direct measurements and numerical simulation allows assessing the performance of horizontal collector systems. The ideas consists on using data collected on field to simulate the thermal interference between horizontal heat exchangers and subsoil. Accordingly, we want to evaluate the influence of TEBM on Read more about Monitor the parameters over time at the ITER test site[…]

Thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)

What is a thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)? One of the key challenges of ITER Project is to create thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM) suitable for horizontal collectors. The idea is improving the heat transfer of the ground surrounding the pipes used in very shallow geothermal systems (VSGS). Why? Since the VSGS performance depends on Read more about Thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)[…]

MSCA fellow at EuroScience Open Forum in Manchester

What does a MSCA fellow do at a forum on the future of science? What happens when more than one MSCA fellow come in the same place? Well, this is exactly what MSCA ESOF satellite event in Manchester allowed. During 2 days in July (28-29.07.2016) the main idea was to analyze the relationship between research Read more about MSCA fellow at EuroScience Open Forum in Manchester[…]
