AbstractExtreme events such as tsunamis and floods have caused massive damaging consequences to nearshore infrastructures. This has been more significant recently due to a changing climate. Transmission pipelines are among such infrastructures and need to be protected against potential extreme events. Design of pipelines requires comprehensive understanding of the exerting hydrodynamic forces. Such pipelines are often placed on sloping beds in coastal areas. Therefore, to address the uncertainties and parameters involved in extreme hydrodynamic loading on pipelines near sloping bed, an experimental program was conducted at the hydraulic laboratory in WASEDA University, Tokyo, Japan. This study is a complement of another experimental research conducted by Ghodoosipour et al., 2019a and b to investigate loadings from tsunami-like dam-break waves on pipelines located on flat bed.
