OPENQUAKE

OpenQuake (OQ) - comprised of the engine, platform and tools - caters to a variety of users, from modellers and researchers to emergency planners - OpenQuake is used for a wide range of purposes for disaster risk reduction and management.

free, open-source software for the assessment of earthquake hazard and risk.

explore, access, manipulate, visualize GEM datasets, models and tools.

a wide range of open-source source tools to calculate earthquake risk.

OQ ENGINE  CALCULATORS AND OUTPUTS

 

PHYSICAL RISK

Classical PSHA-based:

  • asset-specific loss exceedance curves, average annual loss, loss maps, building typology disaggregation

Event-based risk:

  • event loss tables, loss exceedance curves - asset specific and aggregated, average annual loss, loss maps, loss disaggregation

 

Scenario hazard:

  • loss statistics, loss maps

Scenario damage:

  • collapse maps, damage distribution per asset and building typology

HAZARD

Classical PSHA*:

  • hazard curves, hazard maps, uniform hazard spectra (UHS), disaggregation

 

Event-based hazard:

  • stochastic earthquake event sets and ground motion fields, hazard curves, hazard maps

 

Scenario hazard:

  • single event - stochastically generated ground motion fields

Additional features:

  • 5 typologies for modeling seismic sources

  • 100+ GMPEs implemented and tested

  • Tools for harmonizing catalogs, creating seismogenic input files, analyzing strong motions and GMPEs
