Simulation of a road in permafrost area

Road design in permafrost areas requires a special approach based on the thermal analyses of soil foundations and roadbeds to determine the necessary design parameters of the road, such as the height of embankment, the thickness of the thermal insulation layer, etc.

Frost 3D Universal was used to perform a detailed 3D thermal analysis on a 1,300 meter tract of road over a 1000x300x90 meter region.
