The principal aim of the current study is to examine a Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method (SBFEM)-based model to analyze the interaction problem between the water waves and moored floating breakwaters with sharp edges. Regarding the increasing employ of rectangular cross-section floating breakwaters with vertical side plates to their down-wave and up-wave sides (π-shaped floating breakwaters), they are used as a practical basis to examine how the model works. By comparing the present solutions to those from existing literature, without changing the mesh density compared to previous simulations used in simple configurations, the accuracy and generality of the present model in the complex configurations are evaluated. It is demonstrated that as the proposed model is a semi-analytical method, unlike conventional numerical methods, there is no need to refine the mesh around sharp corners, which can considerably save the computational time, effort, and cost in large solution domains.
