The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) Broadband Platform (BBP) is an open‐source software distribution that contains physics‐based ground‐motion models capable of calculating earthquake ground motions at frequencies above 10 Hz across regional distances. In addition, the BBP contains software tools for evaluating ground‐motion models and comparing simulation results to observed ground‐motion recordings and against ground‐motion prediction equations (GMPEs). The BBP also includes software utilities that help users run large numbers of ground‐motion simulations and manage the simulation results. Several of the ground‐motion simulation methods included in the BBP are described in related articles in this special focus issue. In this...
