Abstract
We present some developments in the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the solution of complex coupled problems in coastal engineering involving fluid-soil-structure interaction (FSSI) such as the stability of breakwaters and harbor constructions under sea waves, the sinking of ships and the collision of ships with ice blocks.
