Urban Flood Control
Unexpected disasters may occur in highly developed urban areas. In this section, we study fluvial, seismic and tsunami disasters in urban areas. We develop numerical simulation models and execute experiments related to compound/secondary urban disasters. The main research topics are as follows:
1) Mechanism of urban flood disasters due to heavy rainfall, river flood, storm surge, tsunami or their combination.
2) Numerical modeling and analysis of fluid-structure coupled systems.
3) Structural design for extreme events.
4) Evaluation of performance against various disasters and maintenance of infrastructure.
