OpenSees – A simple docker image

It’s great to see that even a small work done for academia can make a positive impact, with Carmine Galasso of EPICentre UCL.
Last year, I’ve created a Docker image for OpenSees, a software used for earthquake modeling. This allowed a deployment in a Kubernetes cluster, it’s a simple way to automate scaling the computational effort.
In that case, it reduced the time for the analysis from months to a couple of days.

Completed the work, I’ve published the image freely online for the community to use.

Since then, it has been downloaded more than 20K times and it has contributed to the work of researchers all over the world! ( )
