We present a numerical method that has been developed to simulate the flow that results from the impact of a liquid drop onto the surface of a deep liquid pool. The numerical method uses second order finite difference approximations to the governing equations and volume based techniques for tracking free surfaces and modelling the effect of surface tension. Simulations of impacting drops are validated by comparing the numerical results with high speed movie images. The potential of the method is demonstrated by using it to visualize the formation of vortex rings that results from a drop impact at low velocity.
