A fully nonlinear Boussinesq model for surface waves. Part 1. Highly nonlinear unsteady waves
Fully nonlinear extensions of Boussinesq equations are derived to simulate surface wave propagation in coastal regions. By using the velocity at a certain depth as a dependent variable (Nwogu 1993),Expand
Tsunami Generation by Submarine Mass Failure. I: Modeling, Experimental Validation, and Sensitivity Analyses
Numerical simulations are performed with a two-dimensional (2D) fully nonlinear potential flow (FNPF) model for tsunami generation by two idealized types of submarine mass failure (SMF): underwaterExpand
A high-order adaptive time-stepping TVD solver for Boussinesq modeling of breaking waves and coastal inundation
We present a high-order adaptive time-stepping TVD solver for the fully nonlinear Boussinesq model of Chen (2006), extended to include moving reference level as in Kennedy et al. (2001). TheExpand
ABST.RACT: Sho~ling and breaki,ng of solitary waves is computed on slopes from 1:100 to 1:8 using an expenmentally validated fully nonhnear wave model based on potential flow equations.Expand
Landslide tsunami case studies using a Boussinesq model and a fully nonlinear tsunami generation model
Case studies of landslide tsunamis require integration of marine geology data and interpretations into numerical simulations of tsunami attack. Many landslide tsunami generation and propagationExpand
Experimental Study of Tsunami Generation by Three-Dimensional Rigid Underwater Landslides
Large scale, three-dimensional, laboratory experiments are performed to study tsunami generation by rigid underwater landslides. The main purpose of these experiments is to both gain insight intoExpand
Tsunami Generation by Submarine Mass Failure. II: Predictive Equations and Case Studies
Based on numerical simulations presented in Part I, we derive predictive empirical equations describing tsunami generation by submarine mass failure (SMF) that are only valid in the vicinity of theExpand
Development of a 3D numerical wave tank for modeling tsunami generation by underwater landslides
A three-dimensional (3D) numerical wave tank (NWT) solving fully nonlinear potential flow theory, with a higher-order boundary element method (BEM), is modified to simulate tsunami generation byExpand
The Papua New Guinea tsunami of 17 July 1998: anatomy of a catastrophic event
Abstract. The Papua New Guinea (PNG) tsunami of July 1998 was a seminal event because it demonstrated that relatively small and relatively deepwater Submarine Mass Failures (SMFs) can causeExpand
A fully non‐linear model for three‐dimensional overturning waves over an arbitrary bottom
An accurate three-dimensional numerical model, applicable to strongly non-linear waves, is proposed. The model solves fully non-linear potential flow equations with a free surface using aExpand
