AbstractThe 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake (GEJE) has shown that Tsunami disasters not only cause flooding damage but also can be a phenomenon accompanied by many damage of structures. In order to evaluate the damage of the building due to the tsunami, a three dimensional numerical tank with structure analysis is required, but the calculation cost is very high to calculate from the tsunami source of the tsunami to the inundation zone. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to develop a system that can calculate the destruction of buildings from a wave source of the tsunami in a series and confirm its validity. Specifically, the stability of Tsunami breakwaters in Kamaishi Bay and the seawalls in Otsuchi Bay was investigated.
