by Vallam (Indian Inst Of Technoloy Madras, India) Sundar, Sannasi Annamalaisamy (Indian Inst Of Technology Madras, India) Sannasiraj, K (Indian Inst Of Technology Madras, India) Murali, V (Indian Inst Of Technology Madras, India) Sriram
Part of the Advanced Series On Ocean Engineering series
The most pertinent tsunami related issues such as water borne debris during tsunami flooding, design loads to incorporate for impact forces on coastal zone infrastructure, detection and warning are meticulously incorporated in this book.Modelling of various coastal processes have proven to be successful in the recent past, which includes extreme events such as storm surge, cyclone, etc.
The possible provisions for computational/numerical tsunami modelling and real physical modelling in laboratory are elaborated.
The propagation, evolution and run-up of tsunami waves and their associated non-linear dynamics are discussed.The significant inferences from the experts who have had hands-on experience working with the extensive magnitude of a tsunami disaster reported on the signature studies and post-facto effects of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, with respect to the damages along the Indian coast.
