Abstract

A forced three-dimension analytical model is developed to investigate the main characteristics of landslide tsunamis propagating on a semi-plane beach. The method of separation of variables and the Fourier transform are employed to obtain the solution in the form of an eigenfunction expansion. Parametric discussion and further comparison with the model of a uniformly sloping beach are finally made.
