The Engineering Challenge
Open tools. Open data. State-of-the-art.
Numerical modelling can be used to simulate the seismic behaviour of buildings, lifelines and critical facilities. In particular, it allows assessing the expected damage due to earthquakes, and how the exposed elements can be retrofitted to reduce the pottential for economic and human losses. However, creating an in-house modeling tool is a long and expensive process, especially for earthquake risk assessment.
What we offer
GEM has developed state-of-the-art software for earthquake hazard and risk assessment called the OpenQuake engine (OQ) to help engineers plan and build better.
