In this work, we present the implementation of a front-tracking variant of the lattice Boltzmann method to model water entry problems. In this method, the fluid is considered incompressible, the gas dynamics is neglected and the free surface is represented through a layer of interface cells, whose dynamics is described using the mass and momentum fluxes across it. The consistency and accuracy of the computations is demonstrated through comparisons with theoretical solutions and experimental data reported in the literature.
