Prandtl's mixing length method and the k-epsilon method are introduced into the Moving Particle Semi-Implicit (MPS) method for the purpose of modeling turbulence effects associated with water entries of two-dimensional (2D) bow flare section. The presented numerical method is validated by comparing its numerical prediction with experimental data and other numerical results obtained from the Boundary Element Method (BEM). The time histories of the pressure and the vertical slamming force acting
