<p>Methods commonly used to generate artificial ground histories can't deal with the complex interactions that occur during earthquakes, including the seismic source and wave's path, site conditions, and the presence of the built environment. To address this problem, researchers in Carnegie Mellon University's Quake Group have used high-performance computing to simulate earthquakes at regional scales including complex engineering systems.</p>
