Abstract

On March 11, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake disaster, comprising a gigantic earthquake motion and a giant tsunami, caused huge geotechnical damage. The desalination of tsunami sediment and of salt-affected of soils has become necessary, but the enormous scale of materials over such a vast area presents severe difficulties. Nevertheless, tsunami sediment can be used as materials for renewal. Therefore, quantitative evaluation of desalinization of tsunami sediment by rainfall was conducted to assess the long-term influence of salinity. The necessary time for desalinization of tsunami sediment in affected areas can be predicted based on experimentally obtained results.
