Ramming of temperature sounding tubes
into the embankment
THERMAL LEAKAGE DETECTION METHOD
Many technical and environmental problems can be addressed using ground temperature sounding. Subsurface seepage often leads to temperature anomalies, since the fluid often has a different temperature than the ground through which it percolates. The seepage is inevitably related to an advective heat transport, which will lead to an adaptation of the ground temperature to the fluid temperature. This allows the fluid temperature to be used as a tracer in order to detect and locate seepage. GTC® has developed a technique which allows temperature measurements in soils and embankments to depths in excess of 30m.
