This paper examines the generation and propagation of a Third order solitary water wave along the channel. First the Incompressible Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (ISPH) numerical method is described and the boundary condition handling method is presented. The numerical model is then used to simulate solitary wave propagation along the fixed depth channel. The numerical results are compared with analytical data in terms of free surface displacements, fluid particle velocity, phase speed, flow field counters and some other wave parameters. In general, the numerical model gives satisfactory results for the wave kinematics.
