XBeach, the open-source nearshore morphodynamic software, developed by IHE Delft, Deltares and TU Delft, was presented for the first time 10 years ago. This anniversary was celebrated with a conference on the development and application of the XBeach and other morphodynamic models on the world’s coasts, organized by and held in Deltares.
On 3rd of November Antea Group presented the numerical work developed by Antea Group with XBeach, in the framework of a project commissioned to Flanders Hydraulics Research. An abstract was included in the event proceedings under the title "Short-term morphology response to storms at a nourished coastal area in Belgium".
XBeach could bring together more than 100 researchers and consultants from several international institutions. Several topics were covered, including the numerical development of the model, the knowledge on the involved processes and the application to case studies.
