Title: Technical Spotlight: NEAMS Structural Mechanics with Diablo

The Diablo code being developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) uses implicit, Lagrangian finite element methods for the simulation of solid mechanics and multi-physics events over moderate to long time frames. A recent effort examined technologies needed to extend Diablo for use in seismic response incorporating soil-structure interaction (SSI). Our SSI study was intended to illustrate how advanced time-domain simulation approaches compare with and complement the standard frequency-domain approach for SSI.
