Environmentally friendly and cost reducing technique towards tsunami disaster mitigation of coastal structures

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In order to protect coastal structures from the damage due to impact force of tsunami, a new concept of using waste tires behind such structures is introduced in this paper. A physical model for tsunami impact force simulation was developed to evaluate the reduction effect of tsunami impact force by the tire structures. From aesthetic point of view, cultivation of suitable plants inside the tires is also proposed. Field tests on planting trees that can grow in saline soil conditions were performed to see whether such structure can preserve the greenery of the area.
