SimCenter Featured in the NHERI Science Plan, Third Edition - The SimCenter is pleased to announce that its software tools are featured in the recently published NHERI Science Plan, Third Edition. In this edition of the NHERI Science Plan, early-career users will find stimulating ideas that leverage SimCenter tools in natural hazards engineering research. Additionally, the facility overview highlights four broad research opportunities that benefit directly from deploying SimCenter tools.


NHERI Computational Symposium - This symposium was held on February 1-2, 2024, and it convened over 200 researchers and industry practitioners from various natural hazards engineering disciplines. The symposium provided a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing in fields such as wind, flood, wildfire, tsunami and storm surge, earthquake, uncertainty quantification, multi-hazards, and related areas.


Vickery elected to NAE - Peter Vickery, SimCenter Advisory Board member, was elected to the 2024 National Academy of Engineering, in recognition for establishing hurricane risk in national standards, and modeling hurricane losses.


Major Release of R2D (V4.0): Transportation infrastructure. The R2D application advances the capabilities of the natural hazards engineering community by facilitating the high-resolution assessment of disaster impact and risk on a regional scale. This major release enables the user to conduct HAZUS evaluations of transportation infrastructure.


Updated quoFEM (V3.5) application. The quoFEM application advances the use of uncertainty quantification and optimization within the field of natural hazards engineering. Bayesian calibration of hierarchical models using an adaptive Metropolis-within-Gibbs sampling algorithm is implemented in this update.


The SimCenter provides next-generation computational modeling and simulation software tools, user support, and educational materials to the natural hazards engineering research community with the goal of advancing the nation’s capability to simulate the impact of natural hazards on structures, lifelines, and communities.
