High-performance computing has brought about a renaissance in computational seismology and earthquake engineering. Researchers in both fields are using advanced numeric tools and high-fidelity numerical models synergistically to create rupture-to-rafters simulations. This end-to-end approach promises to significantly advance earthquake damage prediction, preparation, mitigation, and disaster response.
