SPEED – SPectral Elements in Elastodynamics with Discontinuous Galerkin

SPEED is a discontinuous Galerkin spectral element code for the reliable prediction of near-fault ground motions and seismic response of strategic structures in complex 3D scenarios. It could be employed to establish collapse-prevention strategies for strategic structures located in the proximity of a fault. SPEED is jointly developed by MOX and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DICA) at Politecnico di Milano. For further information visit SPEED webpage.
