2007 Community Finite Element Models for Fault Systems and Tectonic Studies
The focus of this gathering was on computational models addressing the seismic cycle across single and multiple events. The workshop blended science talks on case studies from particular faulting environments and on key rheological behavior with discussions of current obstacles to crustal deformation modeling and software development priorities.
As in previous years, topics spanned a variety of computational issues including how to go from a geologic structural model to a finite element model, different numerical issues including optimal meshes and remeshing, and consideration of different bulk and fault zone rheologies. Another explicit goal of this workshop was to provide basic training in the installation, use, and customization of existing, freely available modeling software for crustal deformation. Dedicated time was provided at the beginning and end of the workshop for hands-on interaction with other users and developers of the primary existing tools. This year's workshop was held from June 25-29, 2007, in Golden, Colorado on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines. Limited reimbursement is available for all participants, for a portion of costs incurred. There were no registration fees.
