The incident bore impact loads acting on a tall structure is simulated using the refined Moving Particle Simulation (MPS) method. The particle method is more feasible and effective than conventional grid-based methods for the violent free-surface problems. In the present study, the simulation results for the temporal change of the hydrodynamic force on the structure and longitudinal velocity component around the structure are compared with the experiments (Radd and Bidoae, 2005). And the mitigation effects by installation of various obstacles in front of the main structure are investigated and discussed form the simulation results.
