Tidal bore is a fascinating and powerful hydraulic phenomenon. In this paper, the tidal bore’s process is studied using 3D Smooth Particle Hydrodynamic (SPH) model. The Lagrangian nature of SPH suits well to the modeling of the complex fluid flow phenomenon. In the SPH method, the Navier-Stokes equations are discretized with fluid particles in the Lagrangine sense. Boundary conditions, including both no slip wall and bottom wall, are implemented using dynamic boundary particles. Using SPH, the bore’s generation together with its traverse along the channel are presented, including the description of flow field and bore’s configuration. Different types of bores’ behavior are investigated. It is observed that there is a splash of water surge up the wall and the front of the bore becomes a breaker wave when the initial water column travels at high speed. The velocity field and bore heights at different locations are visualized and discussed as well.
