New Simulations Break Down Potential Impact of a Major Quake by Building Location and Size

With unprecedented resolution, scientists and engineers are simulating precisely how a large-magnitude earthquake along the Hayward Fault would affect different locations and buildings across the San Francisco Bay Area.

Exascale Holds the Key to Generating Realistic and Accurate Scenarios of Future Earthquakes

Computer simulation has become an essential and core component of earthquake design for major infrastructure, but researchers need to better understand and quantify future earthquakes. Exascale computing could allow for the realization of such advances. Learn more on Let's Talk Exascale.
