EQSIM: High-Performance, Multidisciplinary Simulations for Regional-Scale Earthquake Hazard/Risk Assessments

Principal Investigator: David McCallen, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

EQSIM is endeavoring to move computational earthquake hazard and risk assessments to a frequency range (~10Hz) relevant to estimating the risk to key engineered systems. This project aims to provide the first strong coupling and linkage between simulations of earthquake hazards (ground motions) and risk (structural system demands).
