Linear and non-linear finite element method models were developed for a reinforced concrete bridge that had been strengthened with fiber reinforced polymer composites. ANSYS and SAP2000 modeling software were used; however, most of the development effort used ANSYS. The model results agreed well with measurements from full-size laboratory beams and the(More)
In this paper a numerical model for predicting waves generated by nearshore submarine mass-movements is described. The model is based on the Reynolds averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations with the k2e turbulence model. The volume of fluid (VOF) method is employed to track the free surface. Numerical results obtained from the present model are validated(More)
A diverse series of research projects have taken place or are underway at the NEES Tsunami Research Facility at Oregon State University. Projects range from the simulation of the processes and effects of tsunamis generated by sub-aerial and submarine landslides (NEESR, Georgia Tech.), model comparisons of tsunami wave effects on bottom profiles and scouring(More)
