INVESTIGATION OF DESTROYED STRUCTURES AND THE RECONSTRUCTION PROGRAM; ISE-WAN TYPHOON

Senri Tsuruta

Abstract


The powerful Ise-wan Typhoon destroyed coastal defense works along the Bays of Ise, Chita, and Atsumi, over nearly the entire length of the coastline, and also inflicted considerable damage on breakwaters, piers, and other harbour facilities. The destruction observed in various structures show a close resemblance, and the ground leading to such destruction may be classified into several categories, indicating that these coastal structures possessed a common weakness against the destruction force of nature. This common weakness presents a particuler problem in planning and carrying out reconstruction works in the future.
