[Earthquake cycle simulations are important for studying earthquake generation processes and physics-based earthquake damage estimations. Earthquake cycle simulation methods typically assume a frictional constitutive relation on a known fault plane in a solid continuum and calculate earthquake...
[Seismological observational studies have revealed that earthquakes exhibit dynamic self-similar crack growth constituting 50–90% of the shear wave velocity. Remarkably, the peak slip velocity defined on the crack surface is scale-invariant, even from M1 to M9 earthquakes. However, a classical...
[We consider the initial value problem to the Isobe–Kakinuma model for water waves. The Isobe–Kakinuma model is the Euler–Lagrange equation for an approximate Lagrangian which is derived from Luke’s Lagrangian for water waves by approximating the velocity potential in the Lagrangian. The...
[The tsunami-height reduction using a very large floating structure (VLFS) is discussed, where water waves, interacting with a floating thin plate, are simulated through a numerical model, based on a variational principle, including the nonlinearity and dispersion of waves. First, the tsunami...
