Study of Coupled Energy and Mass Transport in Geologic Media

This study will examine the physical principles of energy and mass trans-
port in geologic media. This project is intended to strengthen existing theo-
retical knowledge and to provide information on engineering design and site
evaluation for ATES systems. Research will focus primarily on energy trans-
port mechanisms in the unsaturated zone of the unconfined aquifer system. The
overall objective of this project is to identify soil and environmental condi-
tions or parameters influencing aquifer thermal energy storage efficiency.
Definition of these important parameters will provide needed technical support
to the STES Program. The scope of research includes a thorough literature
review, laboratory work, and limited computer modeling. The research is
divided into two phases. The first phase consists of a literature review and
a parametric analysis of important transport mechanisms pertinent to mass and
energy transport in unconsolidated unsaturated porous media. In the second
phase the research will further characterize transport mechanisms through
An annotated bibliography and a preliminary interpretive report on the
main facets of energy and mass transport will be submitted to PNL.
