Recently Lattice-Boltzmann (LB) methods have matured as complementary models and simulation approaches for solving complex flow problems in engineering. In our work we extend an existing laminar free surface LB model recently developed by Koerner et al. by a Large Eddy model to describe turbulent flows and validate our model by threedimensional computations of a rigid body impact on a shoreline and the resulting wave generation. The results are compared to experimental and numerical data obtained by Liu et al. In addition, we present an adaptive 3D simulation of the classical dam break problem.
