Connecting earthquake simulations with computing power

09/23/2009 | International Science Grid This Week

The Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation has formed a new Community and Communications Center to connect earthquake simulation labs with computing power. The network of 14 earthquake and tsunami simulation labs usually tests one component of a structure at one lab and simulates the rest with software. Hybrid simulations require large amounts of computing power, and NEES plans to introduce a hub with Web 2.0 tools in early 2010.
