Open Source Risk Engine (OSRE)

 

Overview

The Open Source Risk Engine (OSRE) was developed initially in Kyoto University, Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Urban Management, in order to meet the requirements of the "Capstone Project" for the Masters Degree in Engineering. The purpose of the "Capstone Project" was to develop a multi-hazards open-source software that can estimate the risk (damage) of a particular site (object) given a hazard and the vulnerability with their associate probability distributions. The original project team was made up of four Master Degree students (Christakis Mina, Masaki Higuchi, Koichiro Danno, Puay How Tion ) and guided by Professors Scawthorn, Kiyono and Ono. The software was developed in Visual Basic .net 2003. Several modules of the program were initially coded in FORTRAN, C and Basic and then converted into Visual Basic .net.

It was decided that the developed software will be disseminated with the “Open Source Academic Free License”. The main reason for choosing to disseminate the project as an Open Source software is to give access to engineers, programmers, researchers and educators from around the world to develop and enhance the program freely and keep it free for all to use. Using the Internet interested parties can read, redistribute, and modify the source of the software. The software becomes “alive” and keeps evolving “at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing”.

The software was tested using earthquake and flood data and verified using a model developed by the original project team in Microsoft Excel.
