Tsunami force

Post by azamabdollahi » Thu Mar 28, 2019 11:59 am

I want to simulate the interaction of fluid and structure. I don’t know how to define the tsunami force in Opensees. This force should be imply in nodes or elements? For example we have 3 stories, and the maximum of high of water surge is about 1.5 stories. How to define the tsunami force in this case? If there is any reference that explained how to model tsunami in Opensees, please let me know.
