We propose a numerical method for dealing with a moving solid body that interacts with a complex liquid surface. The method is based on the level set method, the CIP method, and the ghost fluid method. The validity of the method was shown by applying it to Poiseuille and Couette flow problems. The method can precisely capture the boundary layer as well as a moving solid object.
