image The Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) was a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded organization aimed at facilitating research to mitigate earthquake damage and loss of life. The NEEShub cyber infrastructure was developed in response to the NEES community's need to combine data preservation, sharing, analysis, and simulation.

NEEShub has since transitioned to the NHERI DesignSafe-ci cyber infrastructure as part of the next generation of NSF support for natural hazard engineering research facilities that will replace NEES.



The databases listed below were published at NEES and have been reproduced here at datacenterhub to preserve the data and ensure continued access. Careful efforts were made to ensure that all contents were migrated, but links to external websites may have changed since the dataset was created.

The NEES Project Warehouse also is available here.
