主要内容:

Geothermal energy is a reliable, baseload energy source which can provide power 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, independent of weather conditions and has the potential to satisfy more than four-fifths of US energy needs. Bridge deicing is critical to ensure roadway safety, mobility, and productivity. In this presentation, the background knowledge of geothermal energy applications is first reviewed. Then the operation principle of geothermal heated bridge is discussed. Cases of geothermal bridge deicing are reviewed. The recent works of thermo-TDR for soil thermal and moisture measurement are also introduced. Geothermal energy is promising to provide a green and sustainable solution to critical infrastructure needs.
