2011 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop

Date: February 25, 2011
Organizers: Ruth Harris, Ralph Archuleta
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center and Lodge, Pomona, CA

WORKSHOP REPORT: Download (172 kB)

The purpose of the 2011 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop will be to learn the results of the latest benchmark exercises (TPV14, 15, 105), to learn about a new code, to learn what is happening in related SCEC verification and validation groups, to discuss appropriate ways to model fault intersections, and to make plans for future code-group activities.
