The water entry problem of spherical projectile is simulated numerically and experimentally in this study. An explicit dynamic analysis method is employed to model the fluid-structure interaction using a Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) formulation that is available in finite element code Abaqus. The comparison of the numerical simulation results including displacement and velocity variations of spherical projectile in water depth as a function of time, with the theoretical results, indicates a good match between these results and the precision and applicability of the numerical algorithm used. The results reveal that pinch-off time is a very weak function of projectile mass and impact velocity on free water surface; while the pinch-off depth significantly increases along with increased this parameters. Additionally, the projectile mass has a subtle effect on viscous dissipation energy, while increasing the impact velocity on free water surface leads to decrese in dissipation energy.
