The peer-reviewed magazine «IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering» (volume 365, 2018) published the article «Comparison of analytical solution of the semi-infinite problem of soil freezing with numerical solutions in various simulation software», which was prepared by the employee of Simmakers company Gleb Gribovski in cooperation with Research Institute of Bases and Underground Structures (№8) NIIOSP named after N. M. Gersevanov.
The published results were presented earlier at the XXI International Scientific conference «Construction is the formation of living environment» within the section «Safety in construction» which was held on April 25-27, 2018, in MSUCE (NRU).
In this article the comparative analysis of accuracy and speed of the numerical solution of a thermal task with ground phase transitions in such software packages as ANSYS, COMSOL, SV Office and Frost 3D Universal is described. All numerical decisions were compared to the analytical solution of a well-known Stefan problem on the wet ground freezing. If you want to study the article follow this link.
