Experimental and numerical study of an earth-to-air heat exchanger in northeastern Poland

Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



Our paper presents empirical data from a laboratory experiment investigating the performance of an air-to-soil heat exchanger between July and August 2016. Measurements were performed in a laboratory of the Department of Civil Engineering and Building Engineering Physics of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn. Empirical data were compared with the results of analytical calculations based on meteorological data for a typical meteorological year.
