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.

v1.1.0 Release Notes

New in this release:

  • Model for generating stochastic realizations of time histories for fluctuating wind velocity. Implements model developed by Wittig & Sinha (1975).
  • Ability to pair different mean wind velocity models with fluctuating wind models
