In this paper, a three-dimensional porous model for wave-seabedstructure interactions (PORO-WSSI-3D) will be developed by integrating 3D wave and seabed models. Unlike previous research, the Navier-Stokes equation is solved with internal wave generation for the flow model, while Biot's dynamic seabed behavior is considered in the seabed model. With the newly developed 3D model, the wave-seabed interactions around breakwater heads are used as numerical example. Numerical results demonstrate the capacity of the proposed numerical model. The parametric study illustrates the significant influence of wave and soil characteristics on the pore pressure in a porous seabed.
