Some marine structures have been reported to be damaged by seabed instability. It has been well documented that ocean waves propagating over the ocean surface exert dynamic pressure fluctuations on the sea floor. Numerous investigations for the wave- induced seabed response have been carried out. However, all previous models have been limited to either one-dimensional or two-dimensional case, which can only represent part of the whole problem. Therefore, the three-dimensional model for linear wave-induced soil response in the vicinity of a breakwater will be established in this paper. Moreover, the influence of several wave and soil parameters on the wave-induced pore pressure and soil displacement was also discussed around breakwater heads.
