Comparison investigations of numerical simulations of incompressible viscous flows by the SPH (smoothed particle hydrodynamics) and the MPS (moving particle semi-implicit) are presented. A dam-break problem is chosen as the test case. In the calculation with the SPH method, weakly compressible model is used, i.e. WCSPH, which describes water as a nearly incompressible fluid, while in MPS method, the pressure Poisson equation is introduced to keep the density of fluid to be constant. The numerical results show that the two particle methods are robust and flexible, numerical results qualitatively agree with the experimental data. It can be seen that both the SPH method and the MPS method can be easily applied to the complex free surface flow problems.
