Abstract

The report deals with design, construction, simulated operation, measurements, computer programme verification and recommendations for "Seasonal Heat Storage in Underground Warm Water Stores, Construction and Testing of a 500 m**3 Store". The aim of the work has been to show that warm water pits, uninsulated towards the soil are well suited for seasonal heat storage. Limiting the insulation to the top surface will contribute to a construction price reduction, which is very important, if seasonal storage is to be economically feasible. The design work was based on the geotechnical investigations of the site selected at the laboratory test grounds on the University campus. The thermal properties were determined to form the basis of the computed analysis of the heat flows. The construction was carried out during 10 weeks in the summer 1982. Approximately 80 thermocouples were installed to record soil and water temperatures on an automatic datalogger.
