How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
In this lab activity, students will visit a local site where geothermal bores are currently being drilled. Drilling professionals will provide an overview of the equipment being used to drill, load the heat exchanger pipe, and grout the bore hole. Soils samples will be collected at different depths by the students and drilling contractor. Working in collaboration with geoscience faculty and student, mechanical engineering students will learn how to classify soils and generate well logs. Students will then apply this information to geothermal bore field design.
