Welcome to the FaultMod Project Page

Home of FaultMod Finite-Element Software



FaultMod is open-source finite-element software designed for modeling earthquake fault systems. It is being developed by Invisible Software, under contract to the U.S. Geological Survey Earthquake Hazards Program.

The FaultMod software will be posted here when it is released.

Examples of dynamic rupture earthquake simulations performed with FaultMod can be found at the SCEC Dynamic Rupture Code Validation Project.
