When concrete examination towards utilization is needed, it is necessary to estimate the safety and the performance of a floating Oscillation Water Column (OWC)-type wave energy converter under abnormal oceanographic phenomenon such as large waves, wave impact force, deck wetness and complex motion of mooring system. Therefore, to choose a proper numerical method is important. This present paper describes a fundamental study about estimation of safety and performance of floating OWC-type wave energy converter using the two-phase flow MPS method. In this research, firstly, new algorithm is installed in order to solve problems of the two-phase flow MPS method. Secondly, applicability to an response analysis of a wharf installation type OWC-WEC of the improved MPS method is examined by wave pressure acting to the OWC-WEC and response in the air chamber of the OWC-WEC.
