The objective of the present paper is to carry out numerical simulations on the coupled transient processes of oil leakage, water flooding and study of the stability in a damaged crude oil carrier. For this purpose, numerical approach based on Moving Particle Semi-Implicit (MPS) method is applied to model the complex fluid-solid interaction problem with free surface and oil-water multiphase flow. Changes on the modeling of the towing tank utilized in a previous study on oil leakage carried by the author are done to reduce the undesirable effects of the wave reflection. As a consequence, the improved results of the transient behaviors of hull motions are obtained for the cases with oil leak, as well as the final list angle and volume inside the tank in cases of water flooding. The results of the simulations show that the volume of flooded water is inversely proportional to the filling ratio. Also, the height of the opening has not significant effect on the final list and flooded volume.
