DesignSafe is a comprehensive cloud-based natural hazards research environment for experimental, theoretical, and computational engineering and science, providing a place to steward data from its creation through publication and archive, and also the workspace in which to understand, analyze, collaborate and publish that data.
The TACC Acceptable Use Policy defines the rules for user accounts and passwords, and the roles and responsibilities of both the user and TACC/UT-Austin.
Users agree to only use DesignSafe resources to perform research work consistent with the goals of the NHERI Program, and will not use DesignSafe resources for activities related to financial gain, any unlawful purpose, or in a way that makes the work of other users difficult. Non-compliance may result in the suspension or termination of a user’s account.
DesignSafe users agree to cite the appropriate NHERI Program awards as applicable in any research report, journal or publication that requires citation of any author's work. You must cite your use of any data having a DOI.
