New Tool Release!  PBE Tool
Oct 29, 2018

The PBE Application is an extensible workflow application to perform Performance Based Engineering computations for various hazards. The current release provides researchers a tool to assess the performance of a building in an earthquake scenario.


New Tool Release! EE-UQ Tool

Oct 1, 2018

Quantifying uncertainties in the response of structures to earthquakes is the focus of a newly released EE-UQ Tool. The SimCenter's new application facilitates this by prompting the user to consider uncertainties in the structural model and excitation.


Postdoctoral Position Available
University of California, Berkeley
Software development for uncertainty quantification and workflow development. UC Berkeley’s SimCenter has an immediate opening in software development for a postdoctoral researcher through the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure funded by the National Science Foundation.
