OpenQuake Hazard component testing procedures
Pagani, M., Monelli, D., Weatherill, G. A. and Garcia, J.
The current document describes the testing procedures adopted in the development of the hazard component of the OpenQuake-engine (OQ-engine), the open source hazard and risk software developed by the Global Earthquake Model initiative. Nowadays seismic hazard analysis serves different needs coming from a variety of users and applications. These may encompass engineering design, assessment of earthquake risk to portfolios of assets within the insurance and reinsurance sectors, engineering seismological research, and effective mitigation via public policy in the form of urban zoning and building design code formulation.
