  4. 4. Thermo-Mechanical Behaviour of Refrigerated Caverns in Hard Rock

    Author : Rune Glamheden; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : thermal deformation; rock caverns; igneous rocks; thermal properties; underground storage; low temperatures; refrigeration; thermal strain;

    Abstract : For almost 4 decades, underground caverns in hard rock have been used to store liquefied petroleum gases (LPG) and refrigerated products, such as foods and chemicals. The design of such facilities has, however, been founded on relatively limited knowledge of the reaction of rock masses to cooling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design, Synthesis and Evaluation of Photoswitches for Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage Systems
