In the case of vessels are moored at the quay, the drift and the wash up to the quay due to the broke of mooring lines is occurred by the tsunamis. In the previous study, the authors are examined to the applicability of the proposed tsunami protection measures as the install more mooring lines (IMML) and the floating tsunami protection wharf (FTPW). However, the Fender influences were not considered in previous authors studies. In this study, the fender influences are considered on the numerical simulation. The three-dimensional MPS (Moving Particle Semi-implicit) method is used as numerical simulation method. The linear compressing spring model is used as the fender model. The fender influences were investigated against the influences of tsunami protection measures using IMML and the damage status of vessel.
