Soil dumping is one of most important problems on the coastal and ocean construction project. In general, the computational fluid dynamics method used grid system to simulate soil particle under flow with concentration. It can be useful for fast calculation; however, it is restricted to demonstrate its movement. The Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method follows fully Lagrangian approach, thus it can simulate soil particle behavior due to tracking each particle. In this study, the newly developed MPS method modified for solid particle was used to simulate soil dumping. For the solid particle interaction, drag force and friction force term were implemented instead of viscosity term in the governing equation. The friction force is due to friction between solid particles, and the drag force can be calculated by relative velocity around center particle within effective range. All the solid particle interaction models were validated by corresponding physical phenomena. The numerical results were compared to the corresponding experimental results and they show good agreement in the tendency of behavior.
