The results of mathematical modeling of heat regimes of channel-free heat pipeline, as well as numerical analysis of heat loss of channel-free heat pipeline in conditions of freezing ground and the presence of snow cover area were given. The laws of heat transfer in the system and the factors that influence the intensification of heat losses are shown. It was revealed that the normative calculation method of heat loss of channel-free heat pipeline gives overestimated values of heat loss.
