Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

2009 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop

Organizers: Ruth Harris, Ralph Archuleta
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center and Lodge, Pomona, CA

The 2009 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop will discuss the 2009 benchmarks and future directions. The first set of 2009 benchmarks, TPV12/13, addresses the case of extreme ground motion caused by dynamic earthquake rupture propagation on a dipping fault in the presence of elastic and inelastic off-fault yielding. The second set of 2009 benchmarks, TPV205/210, addresses code convergence. For future directions, there will be a presentation and discussion about misfit metrics, and a presentation that introduces the science behind our work planned in 2010, dynamic earthquake rupture propagation on branched faults.
