SimCenter Seeks Feedback on State-of-Art Computational Simulation Report

Published on May 5, 2020


Computational framework for end-to-end simulations of natural hazard effects on damage and recovery of the built environment and communities

In 2019, the NHERI SimCenter developed and released a report on the state of art in computational simulation in natural hazards engineering. The report has been an important resource for the SimCenter to prioritize development of simulation tools and for NHERI researchers in general.

The SimCenter is in the process of updating the State-of-Art report to highlight key capabilities and gaps related to the simulation needs and research objectives outlined in the 2020 update of the NHERI Five-Year Science Plan and from other sources. To reflect the experiences and preferences of the broad community, your input is being sought for this update. Specifically, your feedback is requested on the content of last year’s report and recommendations on topics or tools to include in the upcoming version.

In addition to revising existing chapters, the report will be expanded to include new chapters that cover: (i) the use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to harvest, enhance and process data; and (ii) modeling the Socioeconomic Consequences of disasters, including recovery simulation and optimization of policies.
