Title: TSUNAMOS: A Validated, Multi-Scale Tsunami Model for Hybrid Numerical-Experimental Simulation (NEES-2008-0577)
Year Of Curation: 2013
Description: The objectives of the proposed research program are to 1) improve understanding of nearshore, three-dimensional tsunami evolution through an extensive set of physical experiments using NEES facilities; 2) create an extensible framework to provide a systematic structure for validating computational models with experimental and field data; 3) refine modeling capabilities and couple the various components together to create a multi-scale simulation tool; and 4) develop a sustainable education and outreach program that educates the general public about tsunamis and appropriate responses to them. Nearshore evolution of tsunami waves, such as 3D breaking through focusing and bathymetry, and overland flow across irregular and rough topographies, will be investigated. Concurrent to the experimental effort, a comprehensive tsunami simulator, TSUNAMOS (Tsunami Open Source Community Model), will be developed.
