A 3-D Finite Volume method (FV3D) is developed and applied to green water problems. The Navier-Stokes (N-S) equations are discretized with the 3-D finite volume method on collocated Cartesian grids. The free surface motion is captured with the Volume of Fluid (VOF) method. The velocity and pressure fields are solved by the SIMPLER scheme with an alternating direction implicit solver. FV3D is validated against existing experimental and numerical results for tank sloshing and ship green-water-on-deck cases. This method is applicable to calculation of the green water effect on advanced wave-piercing hull forms.
