Landslide Tsunami Generator

Published on


The experiment primarily consists of studying  tsunami waves generated by subaerial and submarine granular landslides. The landslides were created using a novel pneumatic landslide simulator which allows for controlled acceleration of the granular landslide material. It consists of a sled which is driven by four pneumatic pistons which controls the acceleration of the granular landslide material.
