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) APPLICATION

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) APPLICATION

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) APPLICATION

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

PERFORMANCE BASED ENGINEERING APPLICATION (PBE)

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

BUILDING RECOGNITION USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AT LARGE SCALE (BRAILS)

BRAILS is a new AI-enabled tool to assist regional-scale simulations. BRAILS utilizes machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) to create enhanced building inventory databases of cities.

HYDRO-UQ APPLICATION

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.
