Experimental Investigation of Tsunami Impact on Free Standing Structures
As tsunami waves propagate towards the shoreline, they break where the water depth is approximately equal to the incident wave height. Following breaking, waves run up the shore in form of aExpand
Experimental Modeling of Extreme Hydrodynamic Forces on Structural Models
This paper presents the results of a comprehensive experimental program focused on the impact of extreme hydrodynamic forces on structural models generated by a turbulent hydraulic bore. TheExpand
The impact of the 26 December 2004 earthquake and tsunami on structures and infrastructure
Abstract A field investigation of the 26 December 2004 south east Asia earthquake- and tsunami-affected areas in Thailand and Indonesia was conducted. The objective of the study was to evaluate theExpand
Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics numerical modeling of structures impacted by tsunami bores
AbstractRecently, major tsunami events have resulted in considerable damage to low-lying coastal developments as well as significant loss of life. This is owing to the fact that coastal communitiesExpand
The effects of the July 2005 catastrophic inundations in the Siret River’s Lower Watershed, Romania
The Siret River originates from the Wooded Carpathians (Ukraine) and has a length of 559 km on the Romanian territory. The upper river course is set on the Ukrainian territory, the middle courseExpand
Classification of Tsunami and Evacuation Areas
On March 11, 2011, a large earthquake that occurred offshore the north-east coast of Japan generated a large tsunami which devastated extensive areas of the Tohoku coastline. Despite Japan beingExpand
Performance of Structures in Indonesia during the December 2004 Great Sumatra Earthquake and Indian Ocean Tsunami
A reconnaissance was conducted in Indonesia to investigate the effects of the 26 December 2004 earthquake and tsunami on buildings, bridges, and other physical infrastructure. The infrastructure inExpand
Assessment of hydrodynamic impacts from tidal power lagoons in the Bay of Fundy
Abstract The Bay of Fundy located in eastern Canada is home to some of the world’s largest tides. Currently there is renewed interest in harnessing these very large tides for power generation in waysExpand
