Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics provides a numerical method particularly well suited to examine the breaking of water waves due to the ability of the method to cope with splash. The method is a meshfree Lagrangian method that allows the computational domain to deform with the flowing liquid. Here we discuss the appropriate kernels used in the interpolation and the time stepping alogrithms. Applications to water waves are shown.
