SPEED (SPectral Elements in Elastodynamics with discontinuous Galerkin) is an open-source code for the simulation of seismic wave propagation in three-dimensional complex media. SPEED is jointly developed by MOX (The Laboratory for Modeling and Scientific Computing, Department of Mathematics) and DICA (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering) at Politecnico di Milano.
