The results of calculations of the heat transfer in a horizontal ground heat exchanger are presented. The applied model is based on a one-dimensional equation of the transient heat conduction with an internal heat source. The model was correctly verified by comparison of computational results and experimental measurements presented in literature. Thermal calculations concerning heat transfer in the ground under natural conditions are also presented.
