A suite of exercises for verifying dynamic earthquake rupture codes

Harris, R.A., et al. (2018), A suite of exercises for verifying dynamic earthquake rupture codes, Seismological Research Letters, doi:10.1785/0220170222.

We describe a set of benchmark exercises that are designed to test if computer codes that simulate dynamic earthquake rup- ture are working as intended. These types of computer codes are often used to understand how earthquakes operate, and they produce simulation results that include earthquake size, amounts of fault slip, and the patterns of ground shaking and crustal deformation. The benchmark exercises examine a range of features that scientists incorporate in their dynamic earthquake rupture simulations. These include implementations of simple or complex fault geometry, off-fault rock response to an earthquake, stress conditions, and a variety of formulations for fault friction. Many of the benchmarks were designed to inves- tigate scientific problems at the forefronts of earthquake physics and strong ground motions research. The exercises are freely available on our website for use by the scientific community.
