When the tsunami attacks in harbors, the vessels moored at the wharf may be unable to be evacuated. In such a case, damages such as, breaking the mooring tethers, grounding on a wharf, drift to land areas and the collision with buildings are assumed. And, after suffering a disaster, the base for supporting medical treatment and a life is necessary to disaster victims. In this research, the floating tsunami protection wharf (FTPW) is proposed. This present paper describes the tsunami simulation and the motion analysis of vessel moored at the FTPW using the MPS Method. In this research, the 3D-MPS method is applied. The applicability of the FTPW was examined. Moreover, the feasibility of the disaster victim support base on the FTPW deck was examined.
