Paper Title
Study on Progressive Collapse Analysis for Tsunami Hazards
A tsunami can be defined as a series of waves with a long wavelength and period (time between crests) usually generated by disturbances associated with earthquakes, landslides, volcanoes eruptions or meteor impact occurring below or near the ocean floor. In simple words Tsunami is a combination of two words derived from the Japanese language the characters "tsu" meaning harbor and "nami" meaning wave. Or in other words tsunami is the water waves which are generally caused by the submarine earthquakes. They are generally rare event but they cause terrible damage to life as well as to property. The occurrence of tsunami (like the one during Indian Ocean tsunami on December 26, 2004, the Sumatra earthquake in 2004 or the one during the Tohoku earthquake in Japan in 2011) caused devastating damages to the coastal structures and tremendous casualties. And in most of the cases the tsunamis are induced due to Earthquake forces hence it is necessary that coastal structures should be designed against both earthquake and tsunamis. This paper deals with the hazards associated with the earthquake forces and the tsunamis triggered due to these forces. Also extensive literature session is done to come to conclusions about the structures along the shorelines and coast. Also an attempt has been made in this paper for the future scope of work in this area.
