This mini-symposium is intended to discuss the development of novel simulation methods for a variety of natural disasters such as tsunami, flood, storm surge, landslide and etc., which are associated with advanced fluid modeling and analysis schemes.
Since the problems to be solved have the nature of multiphase, multiphysics, multiscale and multistage phenomena, our numerical simulations inevitably become ""hyper-complex"". For example, the methods of numerical simulations necessitate the treatment of moving interface such as water surface and run-up waterfront, the representation of transition from solid to fluid and the characterization of fluid-solid interaction.
Also, the capabilities of these simulation methods are demonstrated with reasonable verification strategies and the simulation results must be validated whether or not high accuracy is guaranteed with reference to reliability experimental data.
This mini-symposium expected to foster the exchange of the ideas and the information about the related numerical schemes so as to be contributory to disaster prevention and mitigation in the near future.
