Frost1D is a one dimensional ground frost penetration analysis program. It is able to analyze multi-layered material with various temperature boundaries, convective boundaries and heat flux boundaries.
Both analytical solution for simple problems and numerical solution (finite difference method) for complex problems are available in Frost1D.
Frost1D includes four types of materials: built-in fine grained soil and coarse grained soil, general freezable material, and simple material.
Frost1D also has friendly data input user interface and convenient result graphs.
To Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users: If you cannot execute Frost1D, please
- Keep your operation system updated
- Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 redistributable package (x86)
- Delete msvcp140.dll and vcruntime140.dll from Frost1D folder
