We present a Cartesian grid method for numerical simulation of strongly nonlinear phenomena of ship-wave interactions. The Constraint Interpolation Profile (CIP) method is applied to the flow solver, which can efficiently increase the discretization accuracy on the moving boundaries for the Cartesian grid method. Tangent of Hyperbola for Interface Capturing (THINC) is implemented as an interface capturing scheme for free surface calculation. An improved immersed boundary method is developed to treat moving bodies with complex-shaped geometries. In this paper, the main features and some recent improvements of the Cartesian grid method are described and several numerical simulation results are presented to discuss its performance.
