Special Issue "Numerical Simulation of the Tsunami Propagation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2020).
Interests: tsunami science; local scour simulation; storm surge simulation; 3D numerical modeling; two-way coupled moving-solid model; landslide and sebris flow simulation
It is our pleasure to announce the opening of a new Special Issue in the Applied Sciences Journal. The main topic of the Special Issue will be “Numerical Simulation of the Tsunami Dynamics”.
Tsunamis are one of the most dangerous natural events impacting vulnerable coastlines. After the catastrophic tsunamis in 2004 and 2011, tsunami science, especially in the simulation of seismic tsunamis, has grown significantly. However, two recent local tsunami events in Indonesia, the 2018 Palu tsunami and the 2018 Sunda Strait tsunamis, further put forward new challenges to the simulation of landslide and volcanic tsunamis.
In this issue, we would like to update the numerical method for discovering and understanding the tsunami dynamics from the stages of generation, propagation, runup, inundation, and dissipation. Focuses are advanced algorithms for simulating seismic, landslide, mudslide, and volcanic tsunamis on both 2D and 3D domains. Rigorous model validation and quantitative discussion are required.
The following are some of the topics proposed for this Special Issue (but not limited to):
- Depth-integrated or Navier-Stokes numerical modeling on tsunamis
- Moving-solid method for simulating dynamics of rockslide, boulders, or debris
- VOF, SPH, Level-set, LBM methods for free-surface kinematics
- Breaking wave, turbulence, and wave-structure interactions
- Non-Newtonian or sediment-transport models for landslide tsunamis
- Historical event reconstruction and source finding
We hope you will contribute your high-quality research and we look forward to reading your valuable results.Prof. Tso-Ren Wu
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
