To conduct simulations, following data are required: the ground parameters including undisturbed ground temperature, ground thermal conductivity, and ground volume specific heat; borehole parameters including borehole configuration, borehole spacing, borehole depth, borehole spacing, borehole diameter, U-tube inner diameter, U-tube outer diameter, and borehole thermal resistance; circulating fluid parameters including fluid density, specific heat capacity and fluid flow rate, and heat load of GHEs.
He told that so far 20 U-tube girders, a locally precast structure for the first time in Pakistan, had been launched along GT Road for laying track for the train and the process will be accelerated in the coming days for speedy execution of this project.
The CVP values were measured using a U-tube manometer and were compared to the IVC diameters and collapsibility index, which were measured by bedside Ultrasound.
