Article
Full-text available
The efficiency of heat recovery in high-temperature (>60 °C) aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) systems is limited due to the buoyancy of the injected hot water. This study investigates the potential to improve the efficiency through compensation of the density difference by increased salinity of the injected hot water for a single injection-...

Full-text available
A wide variety of well drilling techniques and well completion methods is used in the installation of dewatering and artificial recharge wells for the purpose of construction dewatering. The selection of the optimal well type is always a trade-off between the overall costs of well completion and development, the optimal well hydraulics of the well...

During construction dewatering, artificial recharge with wells might be required to discharge the pumped groundwater. On the one hand, artificial recharge wells must be placed as close as possible to the construction site to limit the above-ground space for the dewatering infrastructure and the transport costs, while on the other hand, the distance...
Thesis
Full-text available
For centuries, water wells have been used to access groundwater in the subsurface for recharge or production purposes. During the last decades, the use of wells for abstraction, recharge and storage of water in the subsurface is increased for a wide variety of applications. For some water well applications the hydraulic impact needs to be limited t...

Under certain flow conditions, fluid flow through porous media starts to deviate from the linear relationship between flow rate and hydraulic gradient. At such flow conditions, Dar-cy's law for laminar flow can no longer be assumed and nonlinear relationships are required to predict flow in the Forchheimer regime. To date, most of the nonlinear flo...

The current study provides new experimental data on nonlinear flow behavior in various uniformly graded granular materials (20 samples) ranging from medium sands (d50>0.39 mm) to gravel (d50=6.3 mm). Generally, theoretical equations relate the Forchheimer parameters a and b to the porosity, as well as the characteristic pore length, which is assume...

The temperature inside wells used for gas, oil and geothermal energy production, as well as steam injection, is in general significantly higher than the groundwater temperature at shallower depths. While heat loss from these hot wells is known to occur, the extent to which this heat loss may result in density-driven flow and in mixing of surroundin...
