I wonder how could I simulate the impact of a ship on a breakwater in plaxis? If the breakwater is a trapezoidal structure with some plates covering the softer (sand) materials. The impact would be an energy (force?) dissipated by the breakwater. Maybe in different stages i could simulate the impact?

You will have to take advantage of the Google Search in order to use the available PDFs. There is an example on the first website that you can use an alternative to simulate the impact of a ship. Access Google Search, download the PDF file and follow the example then apply it to your simulation, but make sure you choose the right settings for the ship and also you have to change the environment.
