Frost 3D software package enables you to develop scientific models of permafrost thermal regimes under the thermal influence of pipelines, production wells, hydraulic constructions etc., taking into account the thermal stabilization of the ground.
The software is required during the designing of:
- Overhead and underground pipelines
- Highways and railways
- Foundations and footings
- Piles and oil wells
- Insulation of buildings and constructions
- Insulated pipes and heating systems
- Tunnels and mines
- Transmission towers
- Dams*, embankments and bridges
Frost 3D add-on modules give the users the ability to compute settlement of thawed permafrost, bearing capacity of piles, foundation deformation.

About Simmakers Ltd
Who We Are
What We Do
With Frost 3D software package we performed thermal analyses of the 25 selected road sections on the permafrost, as a part of construction project drawings and specifications «Kharampursk Gas Field Arrangement. Development of Senomansk and a part of Turonian Deposits «. And now, thanks to the successfully accomplished work, we have passed the state expert examination.
Applying Frost 3D software package allowed us to improve the quality and validity of design solutions, structural reliability and operational safety of the designed oil&gas facilities under the difficult natural and climatic conditions of the Yamalo-Nenets District.
Frost 3D is 100% must have software package, especially now, when Construction Department No. 2 develops design solutions for construction of buildings and facilities in permafrost zones (Vankorneft, Tyumenneftegaz).
Our company use Frost 3D software license to conduct thermal analyses for construction project drawings and specifications, including: «Kharampursk Gas Field Arrangement » and «Tarasovsk Field: Cluster Sites Arrangement».
During the whole period of Frost 3D license, Simmakers experts provided excellent technical support services, in addition to the competent advices addressed to the goals and unique needs of our company.
The introduction of Frost3D software package allowed the institute to take high-quality modeling of thermal interaction of underground pipelines with permafrost to a new modern level. It is especially important that the software is certified in the Russian Federation and corresponds to the existing standards for pipeline transport. After introduction of «Frost3D» the number of remarks from the expert organizations to the thermal analyses executed by the institute in the project documentation was significantly reduced.
PJSC Rosneft Oil Company is being engaged in arrangement of fields in the сryolithic zone more than 15 years. Permafrost ground is a complicating factor at arrangement of similar objects. We express gratitude to Simmakers company for the rendered assistance and technical support at introduction of advanced technologies of oil and gas fields design on permafrost.
I would like to note professionalism of the software team developers. The organizers of the project managed to get people who have the large volume of knowledge of fundamental sciences, applied mathematics. And those ones, in turn, were able to create a universal product which combines great opportunities for computations on permafrost.
I consider that the software has big future. Interface look, graphic editor, visualization of computations are the advantages of the software.
Thanks to Frost 3D software package developed by Simmakers company, implementation of design decisions became much simpler, the software allowed to make the design decisions which ensure mechanical safety of constructions with optimization of construction costs.
It should be noted that the software developers quickly react to the raised technical questions and explain nuances of the techniques put in computational models.

I am happy with the quality of performance of prediction thermal analyses computations. Computations can be carried out taking into account phase transition and filtration. It is great that it is possible to observe and control set basic data visually, to introduce amendments and also to receive visualization of computation results.
Using the software it is possible to carry out thermal analyses of ground that allows to carry out long-term forecasting of the thermal regime, processes of permafrost degradation (settlement). And you can set heat exchange of cooling devices with the ground foundation, considering parameters of heat exchange.
The software is certainly currently important in our sphere as you can count on your fingers the analogues developed specially for ground.
In general the interface and a procedure of computation are clear. I introduced the ideas concerning improvement of the interface from the point of view of the user and the engineer in the field of geotechnical construction.
