The purpose of this paper is to put in evidence that the fractional‐step method (FSM) used to solve the incompressible transient Euler and Navier–Stokes equations for free‐surface flows has a problem inherent to the method that may produce unacceptable variations of the domain volume. A simple modification of the free‐surface boundary term is introduced in order to reduce considerably the volume loss and preserve the computational advantages of the FSM.
