Abstract

This paper studies about inundation disasters via drainage channels induced by tsunami, which may occur even if high seawalls protect land areas from tsunami. Since the inundation may cause massive damage to electrical facilities and lead to losses of evacuation routes, it is important to consider the countermeasures for industrial facilities. An 1-D pipe network flow model, which is generally used for a surging analysis, was improved to evaluate the amount of overflow from pits of a channel network. It was found that the improved 1-D simulation model could reproduce the almost same results as a 3-D simulation model.
