This product is a zip file that contains files that consist of PowerPoint slides synchronized with the audio-recording of the speaker, PDF files of the slides, and audio only (mp3 format) as noted.

Thermal response tests are typically used to evaluate the ground formation thermal conductivity by interpreting the measured time evolution of the fluid temperature for a constant heat injection rate. This seminar will present recent developments associated with these tests including the use of multi-flow rate tests, the development of a calibration unit for TRT units, and the analysis of some 6,000 tests to determine how test data is affected by weather, groundwater movement, test equipment setup, etc.
