These applications address basic and advanced modeling, analysis and simulation needs across an array of Natural Hazards. They incorporate uncertainty quantification (UQ) and optimization concepts. Downloadable apps, user manuals, user feedback, and relevant resources are available on the linked resource pages.


The uqFEM application is intended to advance the use of uncertainty quantification and optimization within the field natural hazards engineering.


OpenFOAM based CFD analysis software for analyzing the effect of wind on structures and attendant response, including UQ in future releases. 


The WE-UQ Application (WE App) is an open-source software that provides researchers a tool to assess the performance of a building to wind loading.

The EE-UQ Tool is an application to determine the response, including UQ, of a structure to an earthquake excitation.



PBE Tool is an extensible workflow application to perform Performance Based Engineering computations for various hazards. PBE analysis includes multi-ensemble simulation models for UQ.




Regional Workflow for Hazard And Loss Estimation (rWHALE)

An Applications Framework for creating scientific workflow applications that execute large scale simulations for natural hazards research.
