Hydrogeology of the vicinity of Homestake mine, South Dakota, USA

In an attempt to understand the numerous physical aspects of mines, a numerical modeling simulation on the development and dewatering of mines has been presented. The transient line source was used to complete this task. The log approximation was used to find the change in ...

When rocks get hot: thermal properties of reservoir rocks

When attempting to extract reservoir fluid from rock, the rock is often heated. When the reservoir fluid is hotter it is less viscous and easier to extract. Knowing the thermal conductivity of the rock in question is therefore incredibly important to preform these procedures. This ...

Use of a Pre-Drilled Hole for Implementing Thermal Needle Probe Method for Soils and Rocks

The transient line source probe needle has become a very common tool for measuring the thermal conductivities of soils and some rocks. However, field measurements using this technique can be difficult with densely packed soil and rock, as the process of inserting the probe can ...

Modelling of thermal rock mass properties at the potential sites of a Swedish nuclear waste repository

This article looked at the simulation model used to control temperature evolution in the field for Swedish nuclear waste repositories. Heat transport properties of rock are known key factors for the repository layout and were measured using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Compared to ...
