Abstract

One of the reasonable methods to analyze the collision force of a tsunami drifting object against a structure is a particle method. However, when both the structure and the drifting body are composed of particles, there are various problems such as particles of the collision object slipping through particles of the structure. Therefore, the authors have constructed a particle method - analytical solution hybrid method which can analyze the collision force of a tsunami drifting object to an elastic member by constructing a structure as a boundary condition acting on a drifting object. However, since this boundary was introduced as a virtual boundary that acts only on drifting particles, the collision force of the tsunami drifting object to the structure can be analyzed, but the fluid force can’t be analyzed. Therefore, in this study, in addition to the boundary condition as the structure, we further reconstructed the collision force and the fluid force as a method that can analyze the collision force and the fluid force simultaneously by setting the mirror particle boundary condition for the fluid particle. By developing this method, it became possible to calculate the collision force in a situation where a stagnation point occurs like a flow field at the front of the wall type structure, and the drifting object is decelerating.
