This paper describes an example of full fluid structure interaction.
The 2D dynamics of a box-type pile-anchored floating breakwater is solved by means of two models using COMSOL Multiphysics .
Simulated wave transmission and vertical displacements of the floating breakwater agree well with physical model results.
