The authors have highlighted critical failure mode of coastal structures, particularly sea dikes and seawalls affected by the 2011 Great Eastern Japan Earthquake Tsunami, based on their two extensive field surveys conducted in the summers of 2011 and 2012 (UEL-Waseda Research Partnership), and numerical modelling at Waseda University. Further, the authors have attempted to simulate overflowing wave pressure, vorticity and velocity over a coastal dike which will be useful for a practicing engineer to check whether a certain level of overflowing pressure, vorticity and velocity is likely to cause a structure to fail catastrophically during a given tsunami event.
