The Moving Particle Semi-implicit (MPS) method has been proven effective to simulate violent flows such as dam-break flow, liquid sloshing and so on. But the low computational efficiency is one disadvantage of MPS. In the field of scientific computations, GPU based acceleration technique is widely applied to reduce the computation time of various numerical methods. In this paper, an in-house solver MPSGPU-SJTU is developed based on modified MPS method and GPU acceleration technique. A three-dimensional (3-D) dam-break flow is simulated by present solver and the validity and accuracy of GPU code are investigated by comparing the results with those by other researches. By comparisons, the flow field of GPU-based calculation is in better agreement with the experiment. In addition, the computation times of GPU and CPU solvers are compared to demonstrate the effect of GPU acceleration technique on the computational efficiency of MPS method.
