The present work is concerned with some recent advances in FSI simulations with particular emphasis on the simulation of rockfill dams during extreme phenomena. The final objective is the study of the consequences of an overtopping on the stability of such structure and its possible failure mode. A mixed Lagrangian and Eulerian approach is used. The fluid behavior is described using a modified form of the Navier Stokes equations in order to consider the effect of a variable porosity. A non linear Darcy law is included in the momentum equation. A level set function is chosen to follow the movement of the free surface inside and outside the porous medium. The structure is described using a purely lagrangian PFEM formulation. The specific features of PFEM make it appropriate to treat the rockfill material and its large deformations and shape changes. A projection technique allows to perform the data transfer between the fluid and the structure non matching meshes.
