Simulating violent free-surface flows by particle methods is effective. In recent years, the SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) method and the MPS(Moving Particle Simulation method) method are considered representative especially in the fields of ship engineering and civil engineering but these methods need various artificial parameters in calculation and may have unnatural large numerical oscillation in the calculated pressure values. In order to avoid these problems, the authors have proposed another particle method based on the finite volume techniques. The usefulness of the proposed method in two-dimensional problems has been verified by comparing the pressure fluctuation when a water tank of the two-dimensional model is forcibly oscillated with the corresponding experiment . Therefore, in this research, the authors extended the algorithm so that the calculation formula can be applied to three-dimensional problems. The effectiveness of the calculation is demonstrated by applying to the dam break problem.
