Title Tsunamis : forces on a vertical wall caused by long waves, bores, and surges on a dry bed
Creator Ramsden, Jerald Day
Description The major objective of this study has been to investigate experimentally the forces and overturning moments produced by tsunamis on vertical walls. The experimental results are compared with several analytical and numerical models. Several types of waves were used in a horizontal tank including solitary waves, undular bores, turbulent bores, and surges on a dry bed. Bores produced from breaking solitary waves in a tilting wave tank were also investigated. Various measurements were made,...
