In this paper, the Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin method based on Rankine source solution (MLPG_R) is further developed to model 3D breaking waves. For this purpose, the technique for identifying free surface particles called Mixed Particle Number Density and Auxiliary Function Method (MPAM) and the semi-analytical technique for estimating the domain integrals for 2D cases are extended to 3D cases. In addition, a new semi-analytical technique is developed to deal with the local spherical surface integrals. The numerical results obtained by the newly developed method will be compared with experimental data available in literature and satisfactory agreement will be shown.
