Software and Tools
The Mid-America Earthquake Center has developed software over the years to help engineers in various endeavours. This software can be downloaded from this page.

UI-SIMCOR is a distributed-hybrid simulation software platform developed by the NEES@ Illinois MUST-SIM facility and the Mid-America Earthquake Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
NEES-SAM is interface between NEES-POP server and Zeus-NL (or OpenSees). The compiled version of NEES-SAM is included with the UI-SimCor distribution. The NEES-SAM is written in Microsoft Visual C++ .NET. To compile the source code, it is necessary to install Tee-Chart, which is a commercial third-party library for plotting real-time monitoring window.
P-FAS is the software to perform parameterized fragility analysis where a set of generic fragility curves are constructed using parameterized structural response characteristics (stiffness, strength and ductility) and the Response Database (RD). The structural response parameters are defined for the single-degree of freedom (SDOF) system that is equivalent to the complex structure. The Response Database is obtained from pre-run dynamic analysis results for a range of structural response parameters. Simulation is therefore no longer needed for a newly defined structural system.

Utility Software for Earthquake Engineering (USEE) provides a Windows-based user-friendly graphic interface for performing simple computer simulations of the response of structures subjected to earthquake ground shaking and for accessing data and products of the Mid-America Earthquake Center.
