Relation between Disaster and Configurations of Breakwaters on the Tohoku-Pacific Ocean Earthquake Tsunami
Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers Ser B2 (Coastal Engineering)
In this study, numerical simulations for the Tohoku-Pacific Ocean earthquake tsunami are executed to reproduce the tsunami disaster in the Haramachi port. The configuration of main breakwaters which consists of trapezoidal caisson with sloping top seemed to suppress a devastating damage due to the tsunami. So not only the trapezoidal caisson but redesigned square type breakwater is assumed and compared through the numerical computing to inspect wave force around the breakwaters and currentdoi:10.2208/kaigan.69.i_316 fatcat:6anrbrhtkje67kgtq5hxq3b5wm
