Terashake earthquake simulation

TeraShake Earthquake Simulation

  • Magnitude 7.7 earthquake on southern San Andreas

  • Mesh of 1.8 Billion cubes, 200 m

  • 0.011 sec time step, 20,000 time steps: 3 minute simulation

  • 240 processors on San Diego SuperComputer Center DataStar

  • ~ 20,000 CPU hours, over approximately 5 days wall clock

  • ~ 47 million megabytes of output

  • Asynchronous rendering of simulation output during ongoing computation

About data

About Data


Go visualize

-0.1+0.1

Go! Visualize

  • Velocity components

    (Volumes and Surfaces)


Visualize what

-50.0 +50.0 cm/s

Visualize ?what?

  • Velocity within specific range

  • Color ramps easily understood by scientists.

250.0 +250.0 cm/s


Visualize what1

Visualize ?what?

  • Context – Geographic location

  • Context – Fault lines

  • Simulation Time


Visualize what2

0.0 250.0 cm/s

-50.0 +50.0 cm/s

Visualize ?what?

  • Velocity components and magnitudes

  • Velocity Cumulative peaks

  • Velocity range and color schema


Tangible numbers

Tangible Numbers

  • 55 Different animations

  • Over 80,000 images

  • Above 14,000 CPU hours on Datastar

  • Above 12,000 CPU hours on Teragrid

  • 2d Surface, 3d Topography and volume rendering techniques

Current Viz Effort

  • Wave propagation in 3d

  • Topography with wave propagation

Tools we use

Tools we use

  • Vista (SDSC/NPACI) – Batch Volume renderer

  • Mesh Viewer (SDSC/NPACI) – Interactive Volume Renderer

  • Alias’s Maya & Image Studio

  • Adobe’s suite (After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator)

  • Other things that work


Does visualization help

Does Visualization help?

  • Diagnosis, monitoring and verification

  • Identification of fairly simple aggregate behavior of the phenomenon (wavefields) that could not be guessed at by simply examining standard output

  • Integrate disparate data

  • Makes the results palatable to broader audience
