This paper examines the hydrodynamic performance of wave interactions with double curtain-wall breakwater by the laboratory experiment and numerical model. A vertical two-dimensional moving particle semi-implicit (MPS) numerical model is developed and verified by comparison of the simulated and experimental results. Then it is applied to investigate wave interaction with partially immersed double curtain walls at different immersion depths, porosity of perforated front wall, and chamber width. A good agreement is shown between the numerical results and the experimental data, indicating that the proposed MPS numerical model can successfully capture the essential aspects of wave interactions with breakwater structure and can be a useful predictive tool.
