In this work the feasibility of a numerical wave tank using a hybrid particle-mesh method is investigated. Based on the Fluid Implicit Particle Method (FLIP) a generic formulation for the hybrid method is presented for incompressible multi-phase flows involving large density jumps and wave generating boundaries. The performance of the method is assessed for a standing wave, and the generation and propagation of a solitary wave over a flat and a sloping bed. These benchmark tests demonstrate that the method is a promising and attractive tool for simulating the nearshore propagation of waves.
