Abstract:

Two assumptions are adopted at the present time, the borehole temperature being identified with the temperature of the surrounding rock 1 the temperature of the borehole and of the rock at the respective depths tend to become equal after the drilling process has been completed 2 processes substantially affecting the temperature field in the bOREHOLE DO NOT TAKE PLACE IN THE LATTER. There is a thermodynamic basis for the first assumption, but the second occasions serious objections. This report discusses the second assumption. Author
