A siphon phenomenon is one of gas/liquid two-phase flows including free surface deformation. Since the large-scale deformation of the free surface causes a loud noise, it is important to investigate the motion of the free surface. The purpose of the present study is to reproduce a siphon phenomenon in computer, and to analyze an internal flow field of the siphon phenomenon. An oscillating flow in two-dimensional U-tube was simulated to verify our computational codes, and good agreement compared with the theoretical period was obtained. After that, the numerical reproduction of a siphon phenomenon was succeeded and the behavior of the free surface was captured reasonably.
