SimCenter Research Tools


These SimCenter applications address basic and advanced modeling, analysis and simulation needs across an array of Natural Hazards. They incorporate uncertainty quantification (UQ) and optimization concepts. Downloadable apps, user manuals, user feedback, and relevant resources are available on the linked resource pages.

Quantified Uncertainty with Optimization for the Finite Element Method (quoFEM)

The Quantified Uncertainty with Optimization for the Finite Element Method (quoFEM) application (formerly uqFEM) is intended to advance the use of uncertainty quantification and optimization within the field of natural hazards engineering.

Wind Engineering with Uncertainty Quantification (WE-UQ)

The WE-UQ Application is an open-source software that provides researchers a tool to assess the performance of a building to wind loading.

Earthquake Engineering with Uncertainty Quantification (EE-UQ)

The EE-UQ Tool is an application to determine the response, including UQ, of a structure to an earthquake excitation.

Performance Based Engineering (PBE)

The PBE Application is an extensible workflow application to perform Performance Based Engineering computations for various hazards.

Regional Resilience Determination (R2D)

The Regional Resilience Determination Tool (R2D) is a graphical user interface for the SimCenter application framework designed to simulate the regional impact of natural hazards. R2D advances the capabilities of the natural hazards engineering community by facilitating the high-resolution assessment of disaster impact and risk on a regional scale.

Hydro-UQ

The Hydro-UQ Application is open-source software that provides researchers a tool to assess the performance of a building subjected to loading due to tsunami and storm surge.
