Conveners: Ruth Harris and Ralph Archuleta
Dates: March 23, 2015
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center (Mountain Vista Room)
SCEC Award and Report: 14051

SUMMARY: The purpose of the March 23, 2015 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 2015-2016.
