Paper “Geostatistical Modeling to Capture Seismic‐Shaking Patterns From Earthquake‐Induced Landslides” by Luigi Lombardo, Haakon Bakka, Hakan Tanyas, Cees van Western, Paul Martin Mai and Raphael Huser published in the Journal Geophisical Research-Earth Surface
30 June, 2019Prof. Mai, Dr. J. Vyas, K. Palgunadi at the 3rd workshop on NMEM, "Numerical Modelling of Earthquake Motions: Waves and Ruptures”, Slomenice, Slovakia.
30 June -July 4. The workshop is to share recent advances in the numerical modeling and understanding of earthquake rupture, earthquake ground motion, and ambient seismic noise. Better understanding of physics of these phenomena based on available seismic data and efficient numerical modeling should eventually help to progress in predicting earthquake ground motion.
23 June, 2019Kadek Hendrawan Palgunadi as Visiting Scholar in LMU Munich Germany
23 June- 23 July. The research visit is part of the CRG-funded project FRAGEN (FRacture Activation in Georeservoir physics of Earthquakes in complex fault Network) in which KAUST and LMU are partners. I met and discussed with the main developers consist of Dr. Alice Gabriel (PI), Dr. Duo Li, Thomas Ulrich, Sebastian Anger, Taufiqurrahman, and Carsten Uphoff about the advances of using the software. I learned about the basic concepts and the governing equations of dynamic rupture modeling, friction laws and fracture mechanics implemented in the software started from literature reviews as well as hands-on practices using meshing software (GOCAD, Simmodeler, PUMGen) and SeisSol. Familiarizing the software during the visit and making collaboration works with the FRAGEN team (Dr. Alice Gabriel and Sebastian Anger) on in-situ mesh tagging is useful for the next step of my Ph.D. work together with the FRAGEN project.
