In this study, we focus on the submerged plate built into the Very Large Floating Structure with the partial openings of 5m long, which enables the reverse flow of incident wave to generate the wave breaking. The purpose of this study is to investigate the characteristics of wave exciting forces acting on the submerged plate. Firstly, we have carried out the extensive experiments to understand the characteristics of the wave exciting forces. Then we have performed the numerical simulations by applying the Marker and Cell method and compared with the experimental results. We discuss the validity of MAC method and the effects of the submerged plate on the motion of VLFS.
