DescriptionEarthquake Engineering is moving towards performance based engineering. Performance based engineering will potentially require and exponentially increase the amount of computation required of engineers as engineers move to incorporate risk and uncertainty associated with hazard, modeling, cost, material, etc. into the simulations. Currently those in research mostly are using the OpenSees ( application to perform these calculations. This project aims at providing these researchers with access to current versions of OpenSees by utilizing resources to build the application on OSG resources.
