SimCenter researchers participated in a panel session at the ASCE-INSPIRE conference on November 17, 2023, in Arlington, Virginia.

In the session, “Open-Source Platforms for Resilience Assessment of Communities and Regions to Natural Hazards,” attendees learned about open-source computational workflows, and they learned how they can use and contribute to these simulation tools for their own regional resilience investigations to natural hazards.

Presentations covered platforms developed by the SimCenter and the NIST-funded Center for Risk-Based Community Resilience Planning:

  • “A Shared Computational Simulation Platform for the Natural Hazards Engineering Community” was presented by Matthew DeJong, SimCenter PI, and Adam Zsarnóczay, SimCenter associate director for research outreach.
  • “The Interconnected Networked Community Resilience Modeling Environment (INCORE)” was presented by John W. van de Lindt and Jong Lee.
  • “Pyrecodes: An open-source software for regional recovery simulation and resilience assessment of the built environment” was presented by Nikola Blagojevic, visiting researcher at the SimCenter and post-doctoral researcher at ETH Zurich.
