Abstract

The probability of the Tonankai and Nankai earthquakes that will occur along the Nankai Trough is estimated to be 50% or more in these 30 years. Moreover, because some tsunamis occurred along with these earthquakes, come into the Seto Inland Sea, it is recommended that ships should be maneuvered to shelter areas outside the port areas when a tsunami warning is issued. This could result in traffic congestion as numerous ships transit to the safe areas simultaneously. In this study, the ability of ships to evacuate to the shelter areas was confirmed by a dynamic ship traffic computer simulation.
