Mitigation of long waves by means of submerged artificial breakwaters built upon a mild-slope beach - A numerical study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

It has been a crucial issue on how to mitigate long waves by introducing artificial breakwaters. Since some tremendous and tragic tsunami hazards occurred in decade are still vivid in people's memory, the topic related to the attenuation of long waves is of great importance. This study presents some preliminary results obtained from numerical simulations to estimate the possible mitigation of long waves by means of submerged breakwaters built upon a sloping beach. Our goal is to understand the capability and the optimal location of underwater breakwaters on reducing the run-up height due to long waves.
