About Cloud Simulations

Our Vision

Cloud Simulations envisions a collaborative environment with state-of-the-art software and computing technologies to assess the risk and resilience of our buildings and infrastructure systems.

Our Technology

Cloud Simulations is centered on the integration of the spatial and temporal attributes of the events that need to be modelled to estimate the risk and resilience of our buildings and infrastructure systems.

Our Story

Facing the challenges of rapid urbanization, climate change and resource limitations, our societies have to work together. Cloud Simulations offers a novel platform and tools to address these challenges.


Discover Cloud Simulations

Cloud Simulations is an online platform for computational modelling for risk and resilience assessment of buildings and infrastructure systems. Through a friendly visual interface, construct logic routines to smooth and automate workflows, find optimum solutions to mitigate risks of natural hazards.

Computational Power

Cloud Simulations provides nearly unlimited storage and computational resources and enables HPC for everyone.

Manage Data and Connect Tools

Use Cloud Simulations to translate data to any of the many software tools to which bridges have been built.

Easily Extensible

Cloud Simulations can be extended easily through a large library of user-created packages, Python scripting.

Lightweight Visualizations

Use Cloud Simulation's own built-in visualization capabilities to see results quickly, accurately, and colorfully.

Planed Features

IDE with Visual Programming

Develop in your browser no need to install anything. Our visual programming language supports you describing your complex processes in terms that make sense to humans. Cloud Simulations then turns that into software for your risk and resilience assessments.


Visualization of the Results

Visualize your results directly in the browser and share them with your colleagues and collaborators. An interactive map can be very helpful, especially for spatial temporal data.


Project History

Every project is a Git repository. Cloud Simulations is designed for coordinating work among collaborators and can be used to track changes in any set of files.
