SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Validation Workshop

Conveners: Ruth Harris and Ralph Archuleta
Dates: March 11, 2016
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center (Valley Vista Room)
SCEC Award and Report: 15095

SUMMARY: The purpose of the March 11, 2016 SCEC Rupture Dynamics Code Comparison Workshop is to discuss the results for our group’s most recent benchmarks and to plan our next science steps for 2016-2017.
