A new energy screw pile with thermal battery core
An energy screw pile filled enhanced buy phase change materials to solve the challenges of thermal interference and soil temperature accumulation in existing energy piles.
Network analysis of heat transfer in granular materials
Quantify microstructure using complex network theory (graph theory). Construct both contact and thermal networks and use their features to predict thermal conductivity of sphere packings and natural sands.
Thermal Conductance Network Model
An alternative method to simulate heat transfer.
Rigidity of sands and its impact on heat transfer in granular materials
Rigidity is quantified using complex network theory. Particle shape and local clustering coefficient well relate to predict thermal conductivity of granular materials under loading.
