The hydrodynamic performance of a vertical pile-restrained Wave Energy Converter (WEC) type ﬂoating breakwater under regular wave action is simulated using a Particle-In-Cell (PIC) method based numerical model. The numerical results such as the heave motion of the breakwater and the capture width ratio of the integrated system are discussed and compared with experimental measurements.
