SCEC benchmark tests

SCEC Benchmark Tests

We are further participating in the SCEC/USGS Dynamic Earthquake Rupture Exercise ( where several different numerical approaches and softwares are comparing their results for given dyanamic rupture tests problems. For example for:

  • Rate-and-State friction for a strike-slip fault scenario
  • Test problems with branched faults
  • Simulating plastic material behaviour using the Drucker-Prager yield criterion
  • 60° dipping normal faulting with supershear rupture
