Geotechnics for Catastrophic Flooding Events by Susumu Iai

By Susumu Iai

Geotechnics for Catastrophic Flooding Events offers the keynote lectures (book, 264 pages) and keynote lectures and basic papers (CD-ROM, 608 pages) awarded on the Fourth overseas ISSMGEConference on Geotechnical Engineering for catastrophe Mitigation and Rehabilitation (4th GEDMAR, Kyoto, Japan, 16-18 September 2014). The contributions speak about storm, rainstorm and hurricane surge triggered riverine and coastal flooding occasions, corresponding to the 2004 Sumatra earthquake in Indonesia, the 2005 storm Katrina catastrophe in New Orleans, united states, storm Morakot, which devastated components of Taiwan in 2009 and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami catastrophe in jap Japan, while mixed failure mechanisms, a number of dangers, and infrequent occasions with large outcomes occurred.


The ebook is split into the next sections:
– Keynote lectures
– Liquefaction scan and research venture (LEAP)
– instructions and suggestions for neighborhood governments to mitigate flooding disasters
– fabrics and modeling
– ordinary hazards
– catastrophe mitigation and rehabilitation


Geotechnics for Catastrophic Flooding Events might be of curiosity to researchers, lecturers, practitioners and different specialist occupied with earthquake geotechnical engineering, origin engineering, and earthquake engineering and structural dynamics.
