Simmakers Sahara Desert Adventure Trip

Jul 02, 2015

The annual team retreat has become a good tradition of our company. A healthy lifestyle, outdoor activities, a positive state of mind and sense of well-being is what, in addition to high qualification of our specialists, allows us to develop unique software. A year ago the employees of our company climbed the mountains and experience rafting and this year they move across the Sahara desert.


Thermal Analysis of a Frozen Core Dam with Filtration

Apr 23, 2015

Thermal Analysis of a Road on Permafrost

The design of a frozen dam is impossible without thermal analyses in relation to architecture, the thermophysical properties of the soil, and meteorological and hydrological conditions.

The most effective tool for such simulations is the Frost 3D Universal software package that enables you to forecast soil freezing and thawing with regard to groundwater filtration.

Article “Forecasting of Permafrost Thawing Around an Underground Cross-Country Pipeline”

Mar 31, 2015

The article “Forecasting of Permafrost Thawing Around an Underground Cross-Country Pipeline” was published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal “Oil&Oil Products Pipeline Transportation: Science and Technologies” (№ 1 (17) 2015).

In the article, formation of thawing bulb around the cross-country pipeline is simulated in Frost 3D Universal software package. Presented computer simulation is based on the numerical solution of the heat equation in three-dimensional statement factoring phase transitions. The proposed technique can be applied at design and operation of underground pipelines in difficult geological and engineering conditions for an assessment of the thawing bulb formation. The knowledge of the thawing bulb size is necessary at calculation of the stress-strain state of a pipeline.
