Assessment of inland tsunami parameters and their effects on morphology /

Pamuk, Aykut
Recent tsunami events clearly showed the potential of massive destruction on buildings, infrastructure, coastal protection structures and also morphological changes by tsunami waves. This thesis covers investigation of tsunami motion at inundation zone considering different factors (smoothed ground without buildings, or with buildings), and related changes of inland tsunami parameters and their effects on morphology. For the applications, the simulations have been performed using different topographic conditions at Antalya Belek area. The deterministic tsunami source has been selected to occur by the fault at Cyprus Antalya direction. The difference of the inland tsunami parameters according to the different topographic conditions have been compared and presented with discussions.


Advanced two- and three-dimensional tsunami models: benchmarking and validation
Velioğlu, Deniz; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2017)
Field observations provide valuable data regarding the nearshore tsunami impact, yet only in inundation areas where tsunami waves have already flooded. Therefore, tsunami modeling is essential in order to understand tsunami behavior and prepare for tsunami inundation. Analytical and numerical methods are widely applied to predict tsunami motion and inundation characteristics. On the other hand, the data obtained from field surveys and laboratory experiments are generally used for validation and performance ...
Assessment of tsunami resilience of ports by high resolution numerical modeling: a case study for Haydarpasa port in the sea of Marmara
Aytöre, Betül; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Department of Civil Engineering (2015)
Assessment of tsunami resilience is used to determine proper mitigation strategies. Thus, it is essential to obtain modeling results in highest confidence and accuracy. Haydarpasa Port in the Sea of Marmara is selected for tsunami assessment study due to vulnerable nature of ports against marine related disasters. The region also tends to have tsunamis since it is located on the western part of the North Anatolian Fault zone where 35 tsunamis occurred in last 2000 years. The aim of this study is assessment ...
Investigation of Hydrodynamic Parameters and the Effects of Breakwaters During the 2011 Great East Japan Tsunami in Kamaishi Bay
Sozdinler, Ceren Ozer; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Zaytsev, Andrey; Suppasri, Anawat; Imamura, Fumihiko (2015-12-01)
The March 2011 Great East Japan Tsunami was one of the most disastrous tsunami events on record, affecting the east coast of Japan to an extreme degree. Extensive currents combined with flow depths in inundation zones account for this devastating impact. Video footage taken by the eyewitnesses reveals the destructive effect and dragging capability of strong tsunami currents along the coast. This study provides a numerical modeling study in Kamaishi Bay, calculating the damage inflicted by tsunami waves on s...
Geochemical traces of historical Eastern Mediterranean tsunamis in the sediments of Ölüdeniz lagoon, SW Turkey.
Yeniçeri, Murat Toygar; Avşar, Ulaş; Department of Geological Engineering (2020)
Tsunami is flooding of huge wave of sea water over the land that has the potential to cause destruction and devastation on the coastal regions. They are the result of large subaqueous mass movements possibly related to earthquakes, landslides and volcanic eruptions. More than 44 tsunamis having intensities higher than 6 have been recorded historically in the Mediterranean and connected seas. In order to reveal their sedimentological traces, we investigated Ölüdeniz Lagoon, a depositional environment which h...
Evaluation of coastal risk at selected sites against eastern mediterranean tsunamis
Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Karakus, H.; Zaytsev, A.; Güler, Işıkhan (2010-12-01)
Mediterranean, the center of civilizations since antiquity, experienced numerous earthquakes and triggered tsunamis. Historical information and distribution of fault zones, volcanoes and other probable tsunamigenic sea bottom deformations show that, there are source areas which may be considered as responsible for tsunamis in Eastern Mediterranean, Aegean, Marmara and Black sea region. These events affected the coastal structures that led to the loss of the economic power and social life of civilizations si...
