In this paper we employ two implementations of the fictitious domain (FD) method to simulate water-entry and water-exit problems and demonstrate their ability to simulate practical marine engineering problems. In FD methods, the fluid momentum equation is extended within the solid domain using an additional body force that constrains the structure velocity to be that of a rigid body. Using this formulation, a single set of equations is solved over the entire computational domain. The constraint force is calculated in two distinct ways: one using an Eulerian-Lagrangian framework of the immersed boundary (IB) method and another using a fully-Eulerian approach of the Brinkman penalization (BP) method. Both FSI strategies use the same multiphase flow algorithm that solves the discrete incompressible Navier-Stokes system in conservative form. A consistent transport scheme is employed to advect mass and momentum in the domain, which ensures numerical stability of high density ratio multiphase flows involved in practical marine engineering applications. Example cases of a free falling wedge (straight and inclined) and cylinder are simulated, and the numerical results are compared against benchmark cases in literature.
