Used worldwide to analyse and mitigate the effect of climate change on infrastructure

Design safer and more sustainable tunnels, pipelines, containment systems, and stabilisation solutions for mining, civil, and environmental projects.
Transition from 1D to 2D to 3D design environments to examine sites, simulate options, and plan well-informed solutions.
Explore cyclic weather effects on engineering projects, such as freeze-thaw cycles and the changes created in hydraulic behaviour.

Calculate climate change impact

Climate change affects built infrastructure, especially at extremes. Investigate how a range of heat transfer mechanisms like conduction, forced-convection, and phase change, can impact structures.

Model ahead of the changes and design systems and options to ensure structural stability now and long-term.

Solve big soil thermal problems

Study the effects of changing climate conditions on engineered structures, as well as the impacts engineered structures have on ground conditions over time.

Examples include the effect of structures on permafrost, ground stabilisation using active and passive systems, freeze-thaw actions under roads, insulation options, groundwater control, and more.

Complete the picture with integrations

When you combine TEMP/W with SEEP/W and AIR/W, unlock powerful capabilities for modelling heat transfer patterns generated by changing groundwater flow and air flow.

Understanding these interactions enables better decisions for projects impacted by fluctuating temperatures and cyclic climate conditions.

TEMP/W is part of GeoStudio integrated geo-engineering software

Key features

Apply a range of boundary conditions

Access the built-in boundary condition library to simulate conditions such as ground freezing, and study interactions between climate conditions and ground thermal response.

Observe temperature effects on systems

Analyse problems such as permafrost changes due to climate change, the effect of engineered structures on thermal regimes, and ground freezing in groundwater flow systems.

Set your exact model conditions

Choose from several thermal models and then define material constants or functions for thermal conductivity, volumetric heat capacity, unfrozen water content, and more.

Analyse ground freezing systems

Use the convective surface and thermosyphon boundary conditions to analyse and design ground freezing systems in porous media.

Investigate the most complex problems

Apply the rigorous convergence criterion and under-relaxation scheme to model demanding freeze-thaw problems, and create models with large spatial and temperature variability.

Drill down into results

Select any node or gauss region to view result information, including temperature, thermal flux, material properties, and more.

View results of transient analyses

Create time-varying plots of results in transient analyses, such as temperature, heat flux, cumulative energy flux, etc.
