The SimCenter Learning Tools present educational resources across an array of Natural Hazards Engineering principles. These software applications demonstrate basic and advanced modeling and simulation concepts. Downloadable apps, user manuals, lesson plans, user feedback, and relevant resources are available on the resource page below.
Explore the effects of different building parameters and ground motions on the time history response of a building.
This application explores how different modeling assumptions affect the response of a braced frame element and compares the simulated response with actual experimental data.
The Transfer Function Tool examines a one-dimensional layered soil profile by comparing the output (surface) motion induced by a given input (bedrock) motion through the transfer function principle.
A live interface to study the behavior of a pile or pile group in layered soil; interactively (and nearly instantly) observe the system's response to changes.
Shear Wall Intelligent Modeling application educates users, with assistance from artificial intelligence, on how concrete shear walls should be modeled when performing numerical simulations.
To prepare researchers for advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applications, CFD Notebooks introduces the topic through a series of interactive Jupyter notebooks hosted on DesignSafe.
Explore the different time history responses of a building when subjected to earthquake and wind loading.
The Site-Specific Seismic Hazard Analysis and Research Kit simulates wave propagation along a soil depth using the finite element method.
