Earthquake Engineering with Uncertainty Quantification (EE-UQ)
The tool was upgraded to utilize the new Aloe job interface. In addition, new earthquake event loading options have been added and the tool incorporates the updated UQ methods from the most recent version of quoFEM. The new loading event options include: (1) the ability to perform site response analysis incorporating nonlinear soil models (such as PM4Sand, PM4Silt, Manzari-Dafalias, PDMY, PIMY, and Borja-Amies) with 2D and 3D elements for bi-directional shaking; (2) an additional stochastic loading model; and (3) multiple record selection from the PEER NGA ground motion database given a spectrum.
