Two methods are presented to assess the GHE performances by drawing a box plot and a surface chart of the borehole thermal resistance using the Remund (1999) and multipole (Claesson and Hellstrom 2011) methods, respectively, and carrying out a comparison with the effective borehole thermal resistance inferred in the field.
A calculation of the borehole thermal resistance using the multipole method can there fore take into account the uncertainty related to both the pipe spacing and the grout thermal conductivity.
In the analysis of TRTs, the fitting parameter p [right arrow] -1 was used when comparing with the Remund (1999) method, whereas p = 1 was used for comparison with the multipole method in conjunction to the Hellstrom (1991) extension.
When deriving the macroscopic Maxwell's equations from the microscopic equations, the electric and magnetic multipoles within a molecule are replaced with averaged point multipoles usually located at the molecular center-of-mass positions.
This field is a function of both the applied and multipole fields in the media.
In the approach of Mazur, Robinson, and Jackson (27), (29), (30) the charge density is expanded in a Taylor series and the multipole moments are identified as in Eq.
A first step is to introduce heat sources and multipoles in Cartesian coordinates, in polar coordinates, and in complex form.
The heat sources and multipoles must be extended to corresponding solutions for the composite region.
In essence, the act of removing the quadrupole created the multipoles and the associated systematic anisotropy.
In so doing, it is clear that a systematic residual will be created, which can easily be confounded for true multipoles.
In addition, the "CMB" is characterized by numerous multipoles derived from the analysis of the "CMB" anisotropy maps [11].
1 Hz), with the application of such algorithms it is possible to maintain both the increase in rms noise within few % of the white noise, and the power increase at low multipole values (i.
