Abstract

This paper described the reinforced breakwater foundation against earthquake and tsunami induced failure. To resist the compound disaster of earthquake and tsunami, the breakwater model used steel sheet pile, gabion, impervious filling material and tetrapod to make the foundation of breakwater resilient. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of proposed breakwater models, a series of shaking table tests and tsunami overflow tests were performed on the breakwater. And the results showed that the improved breakwater foundation effectively reduced the damage from the earthquake and tsunami.
