Stochastic, Modular, and Extensible Library for Time histories

What is smelt?

smelt is a C++ library for stochastically generating time histories for different types of natural hazards--for example, acceleration time histories for earthquake scenarios or velocity time histories for wind loading. The library has been designed with modularity and extensiblity in mind such that new models can be easily added, making them available in other software that uses smelt.

More detailed information, including building instructions, are available in the repository wiki.

Release Notes

This is the initial release of smelt. This version provides the framework to which additional stochastic models for time history generation can be added. In this release, the predictive model for site specific, synthetic earthquake acceleration time histories developed by Vlachos, Papakonstantinou and Deodatis (2018) has been implemented. Additional models for various scenarios will be added in future releases.
