Résumé

Thermal response tests conducted to assess the subsurface thermal conductivity for the design of geothermal heat pumps are most commonly limited to a single test per borefield, although the subsurface properties can spatially vary. The test radius of influence is additionally restricted to 1–2 m, even though the thermal conductivity assessment is used to design the complete borefield of a system covering at least tens of squared meters. This work objective was therefore to develop a method to extend the subsurface thermal conductivity assessment obtained from a thermal response test to another ground heat exchanger located on the same site by analyzing temperature profiles in equilibrium with the subsurface. The measured temperature profiles are reproduced with inverse numerical simulations of conductive heat transfer to assess the site basal heat flow, at the location of the thermal response test, and evaluate the subsurface thermal conductivity, beyond the thermal response test. Paleoclimatic temperature changes and topography at surface were considered in the model that was validated by comparing the thermal conductivity estimate obtained from the optimization process to that of a conventional thermal response test.
