OpenSees: A Framework for Earthquake Engineering Simulation
July/August 2011 (vol. 13 no. 4)
pp. 58-66
Frank McKenna, Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center

Structural engineers face many challenges in attempting to analyze and design structures that can withstand the devastating effects of earthquakes. The OpenSees software framework seeks to aid in this challenging task by letting earthquake engineers develop finite-element and finite-element-reliability applications for use in sequential, high-performance, and distributed processing environments.

Index Terms:
Finite-element method, structural engineering, parallel computing, distributed computing, scientific computing
