Tsunami due to sector collapse with volcanic activity does not occur frequently, however, has caused enormous damages. Because density of soil collapse distributes widely depending on its cause of generation, a process of impact into water which drives a tsunami is not simple. In this paper, experiments, in which particles with two kinds of density fall down on a slope and impact with a still water surface, are carried out, and two defferent processes of tsunami generation are confirmed. On the other hand, a solid-liquid two-phase flow model based on an accurate particle method are developed to execute numerical simulations for reproduction of these phenomena.
