Prediction of the ground thaw formations around a kilometer-long section of a relatively long gas pipeline was implemented for the first time on a model discretized in 58 million nodes in the newest version of Frost 3D Universal software. Simulations of the ground thaw formations around the gas pipeline were performed for a 2-year period. For the computations, a PC with a quad-core CPU and 24 GB of RAM was used. The computation in Frost 3D Universal software was completed within 68 hours. The approximate computation time of the given model using the Tesla К40 video accelerator is 8 hours.
