Ground thermal conductivity testing - controlled site analysis


Reports on a preliminary study of the effects of test duration, power quality, and borehole retesting on in situ thermal conductivity testing.  A series of controlled experiments were conducted to investigate these issues.  Demonstrates the need for accurate thermal property values and then briefly describes the experimental test apparatus and test site.
