Three kinds of vertical-type ground heat exchangers, U-tube; double-tube; multi-tube, and two kinds of horizontal-type ground heat exchangers, standing Slinky; reclined Slinky, were experimentally and numerically investigated in order to clarify their heat transfer characteristics. Experiments and simulations were carried out under two operation conditions which are continuous operation mode and discontinuous operation mode and effects of temperature recovery and thermal storage on the heat transfer rate were shown. Differences of the heat transfer rate between standing Slinky and reclined Slinky were also indicated.
