Regional Earthquake Workflow
June 30, 2018

Demonstrating the SimCenter's computational framework, the Regional Earthquake Workflow is now accessible for execution, modification, and community enhancement. The extensible Scientific Workflow Application expands damage and loss estimations of single buildings to assessment of the entire region. Seeded with ground motion tools to facilitate research, the workflow is exemplified through a testbed scenario of the San Francisco Bay Area. 


EVW Learning Tool
June 30, 2018

Explore structural dynamics with a new educational app that bridges wind and seismic loading. Easily define your structure, wind parameters and earthquake ground motion to see their effects in a new Earthquake Versus Wind tool.
