Concept of Community Fragilities for Tsunami Coastal Inundation Studies

  title={Concept of Community Fragilities for Tsunami Coastal Inundation Studies},
  author={Sangki Park and John van de Lindt and M. ASCE and Daniel Cox and Rakesh Gupta},
Tsunamis have devastated coastal regions worldwide, with the most recent being the result of the Great Tohoku Japan earthquake and tsunami, which was a M9.0 undersea megathrust earthquake that occurred off the east coast of Japan on March 11, 2011. In this study, a fragility formulation is utilized to develop and illustrate the concept of community fragilities for a community subjected to a wave of a particular height because fragilities are independent of occurrence rate. The fragility… CONTINUE READING
