A non-othogonal curvilinear coordinate system, which follows the free surface is constructed and the full nonlinear kinematic and dynamic free surface boundary conditions are utilized in the algorithm. 1 Introduction A two-dimensional rectangular basin containing an incompressible inviscid homogeneous fluid initially at rest with a horizontal free surface of finite extent is considered to generate an
