You'll need a free open source software account to become part of the XBeach community. With this account you can access the Subversion repository to download the XBeach source code and the Matlab toolbox, to participate in the forums and to access all other (future) features of the open-source software portal, like the WIKI, the test servers, etc. Furthermore, you make yourself known to us as an XBeach user and can be notified of future developments, events and post feature requests.
If you have an OpenDelft3D account, you do not need to register, because you can use the same account. If you do not have an account yet, please click on "Register" in the upper-right corner of this page to start registration. If you are already logged in, the link is not present and you are already registered.
If you want to start developing XBeach, you will need to upgrade your account to have write access to the Subversion repository. You can request such an update by contacting the development team (you also need to do this if you had write access on the old Subversion repository).
It is possible to start using XBeach without registration by just downloading a pre-compiled version of the source code and start modelling. However, in order to monitor the different fields of application of the model and thereby anticipate on the users of XBeach, registration is greatly appreciated.
