Keywords: integrated earthquake simulation, high performance computing, automated model construction, meta-modeling theory.

In this paper an integrated earthquake simulation (IES), is presented, that computes the three phases of an earthquake hazard and disaster: the seismic wave propagation phase, the structural seismic response phase, and the social action phases against earthquake disasters. IES is enhanced with high performance computing, and needs a more sophisticated urban area model. Next a method of automated model construction is presented for the structural seismic response analysis. For the quality assurance, the consistency of an analysis model is explained, i.e., the model is used to solve the same physical problem using different mathematical approximations. Consistent models share the same fundamental dynamic characteristics. Examples of consistent models of a freeway network are presented.
