An Evaluation of Reliability of Airport Function due to Composite Damage of Earthquake and Tsunami

2019 Journal of Japan Association for Earthquake Engineering  
Reliability evaluation of airport function due to earthquake occurrence is required to check seismic performance of the airports. On the other hand, many airports in Japan are located in the coastal area including the artificial island type. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the reliability of the airport function due to composite damage caused by earthquake motions, liquefaction and tsunami. We propose a method to evaluate the reliability of airport functions considering composite damage,
