Online tools accelerating earthquake-engineering progress

Created on: August 01, 2013

A new study has found that online tools, access to experimental data and other services provided through "cyberinfrastructure" are helping to accelerate progress in earthquake engineering and science.

Findings from a recent study about cyberinfrastructure's impact on the field were detailed in a paper published in a special issue of the Journal of Structural Engineering, which coincides with a Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation Quake Summit 2013 on Aug. 7-8 in Reno. The paper was authored by Thomas Hacker, associate professor of computer and information technology; Rudolf Eigenmann, a professor in Purdue's School of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Ellen Rathje, a professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas, Austin.
