The ICE Themes series showcases cutting edge research and practical guidance in all branches of civil engineering. Each title focuses on a key issue or challenge in civil engineering, and includes research from the industry’s finest thinkers and influencers published through the ICE Publishing programme. Themes in the series include climate change resilience, advances in construction management, developments in renewable energy, and innovations in construction materials plus many more.
Geothermal Energy, Heat Exchange Systems and Energy Piles (ICE Themes) focuses on topics from high temperature geothermal energy extraction, to lower temperature situations at ground surface and shallow depths. Providing broad international coverage, the chapters encompass field observations on sites in several countries as well as computational and laboratory studies. Ground conditions vary from hard rock to chalk, loess to London Clay.
Key features of this book include:
- international case histories on geothermal energy extraction
- coverage of geothermal resource exploration, characterisation and evaluation
- design and assessment of energy piles.
This book, which has been edited by two leading experts in the field, is an ideal resource for engineers and researchers seeking an overview of the latest research in this exciting area.
