Welcome to the XBeach Open Source Community website. This website facilitates users and developers of the XBeach model and intends to keep you up-to-date on developments and events.
XBeach is a two-dimensional model for wave propagation, long waves and mean flow, sediment transport and morphological changes of the nearshore area, beaches, dunes and backbarrier during storms. It is a public-domain model that has been developed with major funding from the US Army Corps of Engineers, Rijkswaterstaat and the EU, supported by a consortium of UNESCO-IHE, Deltares (formerly WL|Delft Hydraulics), Delft University of Technology and the University of Miami. More information on the involved organisations and their roles in the development of XBeach can be found under the About section.
