Abstract: Two-phase thermosyphons used for passive soil refrigeration are monitored using a variety of techniques ranging from visual infrared scanning to measurement of internal pressures. Methods used to evaluate thermosyphon condition or performance vary seasonally. The authors present a comprehensive look at monitoring techniques that are currently in use and make recommendations for establishing monitoring plans for thermosyphons. Interpretation of data is discussed.
