Supervisor: Fumihiko IMAMURA, Shunichi KOSHIMURA
By introducing Coastal Characteristics Index (CCI), data of coastal characteristics were used to understand the behavior of run-up distribution long the coast. By using SPSS software the correlation between the run-up height and CCI were found to good. After run the TUNAMI-F1 code model for far field tsunami and TUNAMI-N2 for near field of M 8.5 event from Sumatra and Nicobar island, we can obtain tsunami travel time of 1 hour and 40 minute to Khao Lak, maximum inundation height is 12.4 m, maximum wave flow inundation is 10.5 m, maximum flow velocity near shore of 20 m/s, hydraulic force of 4190 m3/s2, and average inundation distance of 700 m from the shoreline. The tsunami hazard map of Khao Lak was created by adding these results.
