2.3.4. Modeling ApplicationsΒΆ

The modeling application consolidates information on the structural analysis model (SAM) used to represent the building on each site. It takes as input the BIM file, the EVENT file, and information on the structural model used for response simulation, specified in the configuration file. The input structural model information is parsed into a SAM.json file, located in its corresponding simulation working directory.


The following options for modeling applications vary in the type of model and finite element program used for response simulation.
