The performance of a single pipe carrying warm fluid buried in medium sand is described in this paper. A finite element model is used to analyze the heat and moisture movement in a pipe-soil cross section perpendicular to pipe length. System variables studied include: pipe diameter, initial soil moisture concentration and temperature, and fluid-tube interface temperature. The time varying soil moisture concentrations and temperatures are graphically presented.
