Conveners: Ruth Harris and Ralph Archuleta
Dates: March 14, 2014
Location: USGS Menlo Park campus (Building 3, Room 3-237)
SCEC Award and Report: 13009

SUMMARY: The purpose of the March 14, 2014 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Comparison Workshop was to discuss the results for our group’s most recent benchmarks and to plan our next science steps for 2014-2015. For more information about our code comparison group and the benchmarks, please see the SCEC/USGS Spontaneous Rupture Code Verification Project website.
