About cloud simulations

Our Vision

Cloud simulations envision a collaborative environment which grants access to 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 centred on the integration of the spatial and temporal attributes of the events that need to be modelled estimate the risk and resilience of our buildings and infrastructure systems.

Our Story

Facing the challenges of rapid urbanization, climate change and resource limitations, we as a society 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 that supports the computational modelling of risk and resilience associated with buildings and infrastructure systems. Through a visual interface, users can construct logical routines to smooth and automate workflows to assess risk and find optimum solutions to mitigate natural hazard risks.

Comptational Power

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

Manage Data and Connect Tools

Cloud Simulations can be used to translate data to be used in other software tools, including those used in asset management.

Easily Extensible

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

Lightweight Visualizations

Cloud Simulation has built-in visualization capabilities to see results quickly, accurately, and colorfully.

Planned Features

IDE with Visual Programming

Develop in your browser. No need to install anything. Our visual programming language supports the description of your complex processes in terms that are easily to understand. Cloud Simulations then turns that code into routines for your risk and resilience assessments.


Results Visualization

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 to coordinate work among collaborators, and can be used to track changes in any set of files.
