ZEUS-NL is the analysis and simulation platform of the Mid-America Earthquake (MAE) Center. It is a state-of-the-art 3D static and dynamic platform specifically developed for earthquake engineering applications. Its extreme efficiency, accuracy, verification and user-friendly graphical user interface has made it easier than ever to undertake inelastic large displacement analysis of complex frames using the fiber approach, with a suite of material models and elements. The MAE Center requires that publications, including results from ZEUS-NL, include an acknowledgement of Mid-America Earthquake Center and the National Science Foundation (Award Number EEC-9701785).
