In this paper, we study plane unsteady problems of motion of a free boundary in a potential flow of an ideal incompressible fluid. A numerical algorithm for calculating the shape of the free boundary is constructed based on the boundary-element method. When deriving approximations, the boundary smoothness is taken into account. The main attention is paid to the problems of the formation of thin cumulative jets and wave breaking, as well as substantiation of the reliability of numerical calculations.
