It divides the foundation pile into several elastic units.
This model takes the heat capacity of the pile into account, and it has made clear progress from the classical line source or "hollow" cylindrical source models.
As shown in Figure 3, the spiral heat source model is further developed here with increasing accuracy and sophistication to take the three-dimensional geometrical characteristic of the spiral pile into account and to describe the actual heat transfer process of the novel pile GHE.
In order to take the effects of heat flow through the top and bottom ends of the pile into account and investigate the long-term operation performance of the pile GHE, a finite spiral heat source model is also established.
As time goes on, a remarkable discrepancy of the finite model from the infinite one appears, since the former takes the heat transfer through the top and bottom ends of the pile into account.
In the lab, and later in field tests, Roy Butterfield and his graduate students demonstrated that by making a metal pile into a cathode, they could cut by two-thirds the effort needed to drive the pile into soil.
