Presentation title: A METHOD FOR EVALUATING THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI LOADINGS ON SEAWALLS
Seawall construction is one of the major way of coastal protection against tsunamis. Estimation of tsunami loading on a structure is quite important to proper design of a seawall. In this study, hydraulic flume tests and numerical simulations were conducted in order to investigate the characteristics of the tsunami loadings. Correlations between the loadings on a seawall and the Froude numbers of the flow were investigated. Finally, we proposed the method to evaluate the maximum tsunami loadings on the seawall.
