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 : underwater slides and slumps. These simulations feature rigid or deforming SMFs with a Gaussian cross section, translating down a plane slope. In each case, the SMF center of mass motion is expressed as a function of geometric, hydrodynamic, and material parameters, following a simple wavemaker formalism, and… CONTINUE READING
