Tsunami Runup onto a Complex 3D Beach, Monai Valley
Application ID: 89761
This example is an established benchmark case for the shallow water equations that models a 1/400 scaled laboratory experiment of the tsunami runup in Monai Valley in Japan. The experiment was made at the Central Research Institute for Electric Power Industry (CRIEIPI) in Abiko, Japan, using a 205 m long, 6 m deep, and 3.4 m wide tank. The benchmark focuses on a region near the shoreline, and detailed experimental data is available. The tank is initially filled with still water, and a known incident wave is imposed at one of the boundaries. The wave makes the shoreline move back and forth, washing over the small island in the middle of the domain and completely covering it for rather long periods.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
