Tuesday, September 12 – 2:00 – 3:00 pm via Zoom
Is Thermally Enhanced Grout the most Cost-Effective way to Reduce Bore Resistance and Design Lengths
presented by Tyler Harbeck, GeoPro, Inc.
The presentation will briefly define why to grout, how to grout, and the criteria of a high quality grouting product. It will provide insight into different types of geothermal grouting products and the important characteristics to look for when making a grouting product selection. The presentation will then look at multiple design examples showing the impact grout thermal conductivity has on single, double, and quad loop u-bend configurations. Ultimately the presentation will show how design lengths are impacted when thoughtful decisions are made regarding Thermal Grout and GHEX configurations.
