23th June – 1st July 2018, in Shamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, the 5th European Conference on Permafrost (EUCOP 2018) was held. The International Permafrost Association (IPA) initiated the conference. Simmakers Ltd participated in the conference and also sponsored it.
Within the section “Permafrost Engineering” the specialists of the Simmakers company submitted the following oral reports:
«Comparison of the solutions in simulation software with the analytical solution of the Stefan problem»
Permafrost temperature simulation using sequentially coupled explicit-implicit finite-difference method
Simulation of Thermal Regime of Permafrost-Resistant Roads
Also the poster session had two reports by Simmakers Ltd:
• Computer simulation of frozen ground thermal regime affected by engineering structures and cooling devices in Frost 3D Universal;
• Prediction of Gas Flaring Effect on Permafrost.
In the conference-hall of the Majestic Congress Center Simmakers presented its stand where one could get accomplished with the features of Frost 3D Universal and ask questions directly to the developers of the software package. Also the examples of modeling of the latest and most popular computational models (pipelines, wells, roads, difficult geological platforms) were demonstrated.
Moreover Simmakers Ltd visited the events organized by the Permafrost Young Researches Network (PYRN), which included the lectures on alpine permafrost given at the height of 2525 meters.
The EUCOP conference is held every four years. In 2018 there were more than 400 participants, among which there were the representatives from 30 countries.
