Tsunami Impact on Wall
To consider disaster prevention planning toward the rapid recovery of disaster-affected areas, tsunami impacts on infrastructures are evaluated. Evaluations of tsunami impacts on infrastructures need evaluations in terms of both the magnitude of tsunami impacts and structures’ responses to the tsunami impacts. In order to evaluate the structures’ responses to the tsunami impacts appropriately, the characteristics of the responses of structures to tsunami impacts should be understood well. In this study, we carried out experiments on the responses of concrete/RC vertical walls to tsunami wave pressure and debris collision, and investigated responses of concrete or RC walls to tsunami impacts.
