2005 Annual Meeting: 3D Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop

3D Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop

Date:  Sunday, September 11th
Where: SCEC Annual Meeting in Palm Springs, CA
Organizers: Ruth Harris, USGS and Ralph Archuleta, UCSB

The objective of this workshop is to compare our methods of three-dimensional spontaneous rupture calculations for simulating earthquakes. We welcome users and developers of 3-d finite-difference, finite-element, boundary integral/element, spectral element, and hybrid approaches. The workshop is a continuation of the effort started with the kick-off workshop in November 2003.
