Civil engineering is the art and science used in the construction of facilities which people need in their environment — land, water and air. Airports, buildings, bridges, dams, harbors, highways, irrigation systems, transportation systems, sewerage and water supply systems are examples of the types of facilities which are the responsibility of the civil engineer ref.

An example of an impulsively generated wave that occurred some distance inland from the sea is the one that resulted from a subaerial landslide—that is, a slide above the still water level—in the reservoir of the Vaiont Dam located in the Dolomite region of northern Italy in October The slide generated a wave that overtopped Vaiont Dam and killed 2, people downstream.

The wave generation mechanism was a slope failure without an earthquake. Thus, the investigation of the tsunamis generated by subaerial and submarine earthquake-induced landslides has wide application for engineering design and hazard management planners.

For example, the Alaska earthquake and tsunami of and the Chilean earthquake and tsunami in caused damage and loss of life along the Pacific west coast from Alaska to California as well as in Hawaii. Tsunamis in Waiting It is well known that the Cascadia subduction zone off the Washington-Oregon-northern-California coast is a potential source of giant earthquakes and tsunamis.

Indeed, past land subsidence and landward sand deposits postulated as being due to tsunamis provide geological evidence for Cascadia subduction zone events e.

In addition, Satake et al. It is interesting that the size of this tsunami was consistent with a Native American legend of an earthquake and large wave striking and flooding the Washington coastal area see, e.

A major rupture at this subduction zone would create havoc in coastal cities along the West Coast of the United States.

McCarthy et al. These nearshore canyons just seaward of relatively densely populated areas—for example, offshore of Port Hueneme, Page 37 Share Cite Suggested Citation:"2.

An earthquake occurring near these canyons could cause massive underwater landslides, generating tsunamis very near the coast with little warning time. Numerical simulations have been employed worldwide for some years to evaluate the onshore effects of tsunamis generated nearshore and those generated far off.

Recently, Borrero investigated the potential tsunami hazard to southern California using such a numerical simulation. Wave generation due to tectonic uplift or downthrow of the ocean bottom and submarine landslides near the coast was modeled. In the downthrow simulation, damage was studied from a tsunami generated by an underwater avalanche resulting from the rupture of the Palos Verdes fault.

The results of this numerical model using a nearshore submarine landslide as a tsunami generation mechanism suggested that about 75, people would be in danger locally and that the operation of the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach would be significantly affected by tsunami inundation. Although this damage estimate certainly gives cause for concern, it should be realized that, in addition to the uncertainty associated with various economic estimates, the estimate is based on a single numerical tsunami propagation model—that is, one of a number of models that are currently available here and overseas notably Japan.

Mitigation Measures At a number of sites in Japan, seawalls have been constructed near the shoreline to minimize the inundation area created by tsunamis. Tsunami mitigation measures in Japan also take the form of land use management and a districtwide warning system. For example, a meter-high tsunami seawall was built at Taro, Japan a small fishing village in the Sanriku district northeast of Tokyo , shoreward of its fishing harbor, where residences and businesses seaward of this tsunami seawall are protected from storm waves by a much lower breakwater.

With adequate warning of an approaching tsunami, the population seaward of the tsunami seawall is evacuated to the town. As a result of that event, a massive offshore breakwater was Page 38 Share Cite Suggested Citation:"2. This tsunami breakwater functioned as designed and protected the city from damage due to a locally generated tsunami in In the United States, the construction of coastal seawalls or massive offshore breakwaters for tsunami hazard mitigation is not a realistic approach, given the historic infrequency of serious tsunamis.

NOAA has launched a comprehensive effort to accomplish this.

Once inundation zones are defined, emergency preparedness authorities can determine evacuation routes and routes for search and rescue, while planners can develop priorities for measures such as the relocation of critical and high-occupancy facilities as well as for providing information to coastal residents.

For real-time warnings, NOAA currently uses real-time tsunami data from the deep ocean and from coastal sensors as well as real-time seismic data in concert with numerical models to forecast tsunami coastal impacts. An example of this approach to tsunami hazard mitigation is that taken for Hilo, Hawaii. Hilo sustained significant damage from tsunamis associated with the Aleutian Islands earthquake of , the Chilean earthquake of , and the Alaska event in The economically acceptable solution for protection against similar tsunamis was to create a buffer zone near the coast at Hilo that encompassed the area that had been inundated in Coupled with a tsunami warning system, this approach has proved effective up to now.

However, simply using the inundation region from a past event as a basis for a mitigation program for future events is not prudent. Tsunami protection must be based on a careful application of an accurate numerical model that can predict run-up and the extent of inland inundation at the site of interest on the basis of rational scenarios using realistic sources of tsunamis.

The vulnerability to tsunamis is particularly acute in developing countries as well as in small coastal communities in developed countries where people live in close proximity to the sea and have few resources either to relocate to less vulnerable areas or to implement protective measures.

The committee believes that NEES, by offering a real promise of improved tsunami detection and warning and the evaluation of coastal effects, can, in the long run, significantly reduce the catastrophic consequences of these events.

Page 39 Share Cite Suggested Citation:"2. The run-up tongue traveling onshore can be several meters thick, moving with velocities of several meters per second, which would cause considerable damage if such a wave struck coastal structures and ports. Hence, site-specific tsunami run-up patterns, that is, the variation of the run-up along the shoreline at a given location, must be predicted.

Tsunami-induced forces on coastal structures and scour effects of the waves at the location of interest also must be determined. Some of the damage on the island of Okushiri Japan caused by the Hokkaido tsunami can be attributed to a perhaps unexpected aspect of tsunami-induced forces—namely, the inundating wave toppled home fuel storage tanks mounted on supports above the ground, contributing to massive fires that caused significant damage in addition to that caused directly by wave inundation.

Wave-induced forces can consist not only of the forces associated with the waves impacting structures but also of the impact forces of large debris, such as cars, trees, and poles that are transported by the waves.

These become waterborne missiles that can impact and destroy structures in their path. Therefore, an important engineering problem is the determination of tsunami-induced forces to enable better design of coastal structures such as breakwaters, seawalls, docks, buildings, cranes, and so forth and to guide the decision-making process for land-use issues.

In addition to estimating the forces, it is important to understand the interaction of tsunamis with groups of structures to assist in planning. For instance, when a tsunami strikes a group of buildings, the spacing between buildings is critical.

If they are too closely spaced, the interaction of structures with the attacking wave may produce a choking effect. In that case, the forces on any one structure might be much larger than that acting on the same structure if the structures were spaced further apart. As a tsunami approaches the shore, coastal embayments and harbors could be resonantly excited by these nonlinear, transient, translatory long waves.

The nonlinear aspects of the problem were investigated theoretically by Rogers and Mei , Lepelletier and Raichlen , and Zelt and Raichlen In the latter two investigations, experiments were conducted using a solitary wave a single wave with its total volume above the still water level as a model for a tsunami approaching simple harbor shapes in a direction orthogonal to the entrance.
