Abstract: The principal objectives of the Engineering Program are 1) to solve important problems related to the extraction of energy from geothermal resources (Task 3.1), and 2) to plan and design an environmentally acceptable geothermal power plant suitable for Hawaiian geothermal reservoirs (Task 3.6). Research during the past period has been devoted primarily to the theoretical and physical modelling of geothermal reservoirs, preparation for the engineering testing of wells to be drilled on the island of Hawaii, and studies of various methods of converting the heat energy in a geothermal reservoir to electrical energy. Results of the research effort have been reported in five quarterly progress reports and technical memorandums and reports.
