  • XBeach is an open-source software package developed jointly by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, Delft University of Technology and Deltares. It can compute the hydrodynamics and morphological change on sandy, gravel, coral, vegetated and urbanized coasts under daily and extreme conditions.


Course objective

On the second XBeach course, programme attendees will gain advanced understanding on how the new non-hydrostatic wave resolving mode XBeach-NH+ can be applied to simulate hydrodynamics and morphodynamics. This will include vegetative damping effects (XBeach-VEG) & hydro- and morphodynamics on gravel coasts (XBeach-G). NB: the first and second XBeach courses are independent of each other, but can followed sequentially.


Theoretical: attendees understand

  • the background of the non-hydrostatic mode of XBeach;
  • how vegetation in XBeach-surfbeat and non-hydrostatic is included;
  • the background of the main hydro- and morphodynamic formulations needed to simulate gravel coasts;


Practical: attendees will know

  • to include vegetation in an existing XBeach model;
  • to create an XBeach non-hydrostatic model from scratch to simulate nearshore hydro- and morphodynamic on gravel beaches.


Who should participate

This course is aimed at project engineers, researchers, PhD students with a basic background in programming (e.g. Matlab / Python) and modeling.


Online format

In preparation of the training, we’ll send you all the material and will ask you to install the stand-alone XBeach on your own machine. While attending the training, it will be essential that you have a sufficiently fast internet connection to support a video call, as well as a headset. The use of Windows is required for the XBeach course.
