The wave-structure-seabed interaction (WSSI) around circular rubble-mound breakwater head is investigated using a three-dimensional (3D) numerical scheme. The result reveals that the presence of breakwater has strong effect on wave motion and seabed response. The turbulence induced by the breakwater head gives rise to extensive pore pressure around the breakwater head, which could further lead to liquefaction or scour and might eventually result in breakwater failure.
