An experimental facility has been built to investigate the feasibility of using a ground source heat pump to hydronically heat small scale models of a bridge deck and a pavement.
Also, using heat pumps allowed for the transfer of heat, hydronically, from interior zones to perimeter ones, which permitted heating the large glass fagades in the atria with internal heat, rather than generating heat from primary sources.
