The present paper describes the application of the moving particle semi-implicit method to a prediction of collision forces on water-front facilities induced by floating vessels washed onto the apron by tsunami. Effectiveness of the application is verified. Solitary waves are applied to simulated tsunamis in numerical simulation and to the model experiments. A pontoon type floating body is applied to floating structures in numerical simulations using the MPS method. The present calculation results are compared with the experimental results and the applicability of MPS method is discussed. Further, after being washed onto the wharf by tsunami, the characteristics of collision force on water-front facilities induced by the floating bodies are discussed.
