Application of ANSYS for Thermal Analysis of Permafrost Soils. Advantages of Frost 3D Universal

Jun 23, 2014

An engineering company has recently asked Simmakers to comment on the possibility of applying the finite-element package of ANSYS to the problems of ground thawing and thermal stabilization, and to explain the advantages of Frost 3D Universal software when solving such problems. Note that this issue has also been addressed by various specialists in dedicated forums, and conferences.


Mathematicians and experts in the field of thermal analysis and numerical simulation gave comprehensive comments regarding the advantages of Frost 3D Universal over Ansys for computer simulation of ground freezing and thawing problems.
