Abstract

Tsunami is the most devastating hazard in the world. It has the capacity to ruin lives of people. The structure must be so designed to resist the tsunami forces effectively with low damage to structure. The primary cause of tsunami is Strong Earthquake at the sea bed which causes movement of wave with large velocity. Various analysis methods are available according to GSA and UFC-DoD criteria. The purpose of designing for the progressive collapse of the structure is to design a structure to resist the devastating events like tsunami and not to have a structure which is tsunami proof structure. For achieving this, the same methodology is adopted as in earthquake resistant design such as Weak Beam and Strong Column Design. The structure must ensure sufficient time to evacuate before its collapse. This paper provides an up-to-date comprehensive review of this phenomenon due to catastrophic event like Tsunami.
