Minisymposium in "“Software Development in the Field of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics”

A minisymposium is organised in the framework of the 4th International Conference on Computational Dynamics and Earthquake EngineeringCOMPDYN 2013 ( :

Software Development in the Field of Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics”.
  Organizer:  Anastasios Sextos (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece)
 descriptionThe mini-symposium will focus on recent advances in software development for Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics purposes. More specifically, it will encourage contributions that will demonstrate new software applications, web-based engineering tools, frameworks for hybrid simulation and distributed computing, knowledge-based & expert systems, finite element programs, numerical analysis pre- and post- processing front-ends, data and metadata dissemination and management systems, high performance, parallel and cloud computing schemes, applications for mobile devices and tablets as well as GIS-based visualization tools. Emphasis will be primarily (but not exclusively) given to the application of the above software systems towards the mitigation of seismic risk, the design and assessment of earthquake resistant buildings and bridges, the assessment of special and monumental structures, system identification and structural health monitoring, performance-based engineering, seismic isolation and control of structures, dynamic soil-structure interaction, strong ground motion selection and scaling as well as seismic wave propagation through the soil media. It is envisioned that the Symposium will constitute a forum on the recently developed earthquake-engineering-related software that will facilitate the dissemination of knowledge and promote the interaction and cooperation between the developers and the end-users.
