QuakeCoRE and NeSI's strategic partnership towards earthquake resilience via High Performance Computing
QuakeCoRE is a Centre of Research Excellence fostering innovative research in earthquake resilience for New Zealand. Significant portions of this research require large-scale computationally-intensive numerical simulations of the following three modules: (1) Earthquake-induced ground motion shaking over a region, (2) Deformations and damage to the built environment from this shaking, (3) Environmental, economic, and social impacts as a result of built environment damage. A desired paradigm shift in these simulation modules is being undertaken via collaboration between QuakeCoRE and NeSI, using parallelised computing on NeSI HPC resources and inter-disciplinary scientific workflows. This poster provides an overview of the numerical computations both currently undertaken, and envisaged in the future, for these three major numerical simulation modules and how they are intended to both grow the capability of leading researchers, as well as increase the utilization of scientific tools by the wider QuakeCoRE researcher community.
