A NATURAL HAZARDS ENGINEERING RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE (NHERI)

Research
Workbench

A comprehensive cloud-based natural hazards research environment for experimental, theoretical, and computational engineering and science.

 

 

The DesignSafe web portal will be a cyberinfrastructure for the natural hazards engineering community to provide computational tools to manage, analyze, and understand critical data for natural hazards research. This will include an interactive web interface, data repositories to share data sets, and a cloud-based workspace for researchers to perform simulation, computation, data analysis, and other research tasks. The integration of data and computation in the cloud will enable new research discoveries in natural hazards engineering, which in turn can lead to more hazard-resilient civil infrastructure.

The variety of tools provided throughout the Research Workbench have been designed to better enable researchers to store, study, and work with their data in order to promote discovery, access to information, and enhanced communication.
