Earthquake simulation by using the Fiber Bundle model

Abstract:  The statistical behavior of quakes is described by some mathematical empirical relations. In seismology this relations describes seismic emergent properties in size, time, space domains. A model widely used to describe and simulate complex rupture processes is known as the Fiber Bundle Model (FBM). It is a cellular-automaton model based on the interactions of individual cells, with particular transfer load rules and a probability distribution function describing the intrinsic cells properties. Its simplicity offers many advantages and an adaptability to describe a wide range of phenomena. We are developing a modified version of FBM to simulate statistical features of quakes in space, time and magnitude. In this sense we will use high-performance computing (HPC) to improve the simulations in a reduced period, and machine learning (ML) as analysis tool to analyze the model parameters and also to compare synthetic seismic catalogues with reals.
