The generation of single large waves by a forced motion of solid bodies in a three-dimensional, rectangular channel is investigated. The moving bodies can have simple (idealized) or more complex shapes. The shape and characteristics of the imposed motion are shown to affect the dynamics of the resulting single wave. Waves generated by three different types of landslides are compared by recording the hydrodynamic force and run-up height on a solid plane wall. The three types of landslides investigated are: (i) bottom movement (submarine landslide), (ii) falling mass (partially submerged landslide), and (iii) sliding mass (subaerial landslide).
