Abstract

When a tsunami warning is officially announced, as a measure for safeguarding ships from tsunami attacks, it is recommended that large ships in harbors be maneuvered to sheltered areas outside the ports until the tsunami subsides. In this paper, we develop mathematical simulation models to describe the dynamic behavior of a ship. Then, the evacuation maneuvers of a cruise ship and a cargo ship in a tsunami flow are analyzed and characterized. Finally, it is concluded that this kind of simulation could be very great help useful to evaluate the safety of ship evacuation methods against for the tsunami attacks.
