Assuming a constant heat flux at the bore hole wall implies p = 1, and the p linear average becomes the arithmetic average. However, Marcotte and Pasquier (2008) showed with numerical simulations that a constant heat flux at the borehole wall rarely occurs and suggested using p [right arrow] -1 to take into account the change of heat injection rate along the depth of the GHE.
