IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Tsunami induced flooding simulation and associated fluid-structure interaction using the esi group vps suite of codes.
The 2011 Tš­hoku earthquake showed that even the most sophisticated defenses like the massive Kamaishi bay
breakwater were insufficient to prevent catastrophic flooding of the coast line. This paper will deal with the Fluid-
Structure Interaction (FSI) simulation of a breaking tsunami induced flooding wave upon a coastal infrastructure. It will
examine methodically the problem from simulating the tsunami induced wave slamming and flooding of a building, to
the impact upon a typical Liquid Natural Gas container and finally the large scale simulation of the event on a coastal
installation like a nuclear power plant. It will be shown that the basic technological capabilities needed for the realistic
simulation of the tsunami induced flooding events are available in the Virtual Performance Solution (VPS) suite of codes
from ESI Group and that assessment of coastal protection against flooding due to tsunamis has become feasible.
