© Copyright 2016 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE). Storm surge and tsunami may induce extreme flow/wave conditions and cause tremendous damage to human lives, buildings and structures in the coastal areas. Bridges are among the most vulnerable structures to these extreme hazardous flows/waves. With a focus on sea-crossing bridges where the piers may be the only/main structure receiving flow/wave impact, this work presents a series of laboratory experiments to investigate the extreme flow/wave impact on a simplified bridge model. Subsequently, the experimental measurements are used to validate a hydrodynamic model for reliable prediction, with results further compared with those estimated using standard design formulae.
