As the unexpected wave-induced seabed instability may cause foundation failure, the evaluation of wave-induced pore pressure and effective stress in seabed plays an important role in the design of the foundation of marine structures. In this study, a two-dimensional integrated mathematical model, based on COBRAS wave model and SWANDYNE seabed model is developed to numerically investigate the mechanism of wave-induced seabed response in the vicinity of a permeable submerged breakwaters. Numerical results indicate that this model has a great ability in predicting the dynamic response of the pore pressure and effective stress around the breakwater. Both the pore fluid pressure and effective stress in seabed largely changes with an increasing water depth. It is also found that the responses of the pore pressure and effective stress of different locations to the dynamic wave loading are significantly different in the cases with variable top width of the breakwater.
