In this study, a two-dimensional poro-elasto-plastic model for the wave-induced liquefaction in a porous seabed was presented. Two mechanisms of the wave-induced pore pressures were considered. Both elastic components (for oscillatory) and the plastic components (for residual) were integrated to predict the wave-induced excess pore pressures in marine sediments. The proposed 2D poro-elasto-plastic model allows for the pore pressure build-up process in a sandy seabed. The proposed model overall agreed well with the previous wave experiments and centrifuge tests. Numerical example shows that the pattern of progressive waves -induced liquefaction gradually changed from 2D to 1D.
