• Fossa Marco
    Within the Bachelor's Seminar Prof. Fossa of Università degli Studi di Genova will give a lecture about the following topics:

    The aim of the course is provide the students the engineering knowledge on low enthalpy geothermal energy and its applications. The course is addressed to the technologies and engineering methods to exploit the geothermal resources, with special attentions to the applicatons to Geothermal Heat Pumps for high efficiency buildings.
    Detailed contents: Energy from the earth: the geothermal heat pumps, the ground heat exchangers, design criteria for Borehole Heat Exchangers (BHEs). Analytical solutions for the transient conduction in the ground. Spatial and temporal superposition applied to ground source heat pump problems. The Ashrae method for BHE field design.
