The goal of this book is to provide a comprehensive and transparent description of the methodologies adopted during the implementation of the OpenQuake Risk Modeller’s Toolkit (RMTK). The Risk Modeller’s Toolkit (RMTK) is primarily a software suite for creating the input models required for running seismic risk calculations using the OpenQuake-engine. The RMTK implements several state-of-the-art methods for deriving robust analytical seismic fragility and vulnerability functions for single structures or building classes. The RMTK also provides interactive tools for post-processing and visualising different results from the OpenQuake-engine seismic risk calculations, such as loss exceedance curves, collapse maps, damage distributions, and loss maps. The OpenQuake Risk Modeller’s Toolkit is the result of an effort carried out jointly by the IT and Scientific teams working at the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Secretariat.
