In this section, you will learn more information about the individual lessons of the Summer School. (The program will be gradually updated.)
Lecturer: Anne Mäkiranta (Vaasa)
Scientific article has a strict form with sections: abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, and references. Each of these sections will be discussed in this lecture. Since the style and format may vary between journal, these have to be taking into account while making a publication.
Lecturer: Sebastian Rink (Fraunhofer)
Following lecture will focus on selected databases. Provides an overview of the most important (literary) databases for scientists and researchers. Live samples from selected databases will be included. At the end of the work there will be space for discussion.
Lecturer: Pavel Pospisil (VSB)
The lecture will present the current state of the art in the use of geothermal energy and selected examples of the use of thermal energy of the rock environment as a heat source, but also as a medium for thermal energy storage. It will be based on the experience gained during the GeoUS project.
Lecturer: Dieter Weise, Sebastian Melzer (Fraunhofer)
Following lecture will focus on the outcomes of the German Heat2Share project. Information about the design and manufacturing of sorptive heat storage systems will be provided. Severall design solutions will be discussed and coupled with suitable process chains. At the end of the work there will be space for discussion.
Lecturer: Dieter Weise, Peter Scholz (Fraunhofer)
Following lecture will focus on the outcomes of the international FutureFacade project. Information about the design and manufacturing of solar tailored sheet metal based thermal collectors will be provided. Severall design solutions will be discussed. The spotlight will be set on forming and joining technologies for collectors. At the end of the work there will be space for discussion.
Lecturer: Birgitta Martinkauppi (Vaasa)
This topic covers several aspects of research recently done in geothermal energy. The low and high temperature geothermal sources are described and their potential is evaluated. Different structures and approaches (e.g. deep geothermal) are explained with their current status. This lecture provides an overview of current research.
Lecturer: Ville Tuomi (Vaasa)
Aim of the lecture is to increase understanding of the key drivers and barriers of technological innovations as well as how technology is related to innovation.
Content of the lecture:
Lecturer: Pavel Pospisil (VSB), representative of BHE design company
Description of comprehensive methodology for design of geothermal heat exchangers. The lecture will be based on experiences from design and realization of various types of heat exchangers in installations in Czech Republic. Emphasis will be placed on the collaboration of different experts in the design and optimization of heat exchangers installed in different types of rock environments.
Lecturer: Eva Hrubešová (VSB), Marek Mohyla (VSB)
The lecture will be focused on the characteristics of energy geostructures, their basic aspects of mechanical and thermal behavior in interaction with the surrounding rock environment and the superstructure on the surface. The possibilities of numerical modeling of the behavior of energy structures and selected possibilities of experimental testing of these structures will also be presented.
Lecturer: Nada Rapantova (VSB)
The lecture will be focused on review of research in the field of utilisation of mine water of flooded underground mines for geothermal purposes. Theoretical studies (or potential) of other non-traditional utilisation of heat of underground mines or burning waste rock dumps will be discussed as well.
