XBeach Open Source Community
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.

Tableau is an amazing data visualization platform! It will be able to achieve incredible data discovery or data analysis. In Fact, it is individual among all other data visualization tools, because it is VizQL language. It connects to data stored in a wide verity of files and database
XBeach courses are being held during the Delft Software Days. You can choose between a Basic(Oct. 31st) and an Advancedcourse (Nov 1st), or attend them both. Be aware that for the advanced course, basic knowledge of XBeach is expected (this knowledge can of course be obtained in the basic course). Additionally, the DSD features many more interesting courses, workshops and symposia related...
Hello XBeach-ers! Delft Software Australia and Deltares are pleased to announce an XBeach training course in conjunction with the International Coastal Symposium 2016 (ics2016.org) in Sydney, Australia. The XBeach training on morphodynamic modeling during storm conditions will take place on Saturday 12 March 2016. Note that the day before (Friday 11 March 2016) also an introductory...

Dear XBeach modellers, Recently we published a new (BETA) version of XBeach (code name "King's day"). It is still a beta release as we intend to finalize the release within a couple of months based on your feedback. The release contains lots of improvments (improved MPI calculations, possibility to output in single precision) and new features (amongst others ship waves and the effect of...
During this year's AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco (15-19 december 2014) a short 'getting started'/'getting to know' XBeach course will be given at the Dutch Consulate in San Francisco. This course is part of the Deltares Software Days USA. See the website (http://www.dsd-usa.org/) for more information.

Hi all, Under "About us" I added a list (/table) of organisations that are / have been involved in the development of XBeach somehow. Please let me know if: 1. I missed an organisation 2. I misspelled for example the name of an organisation that is in the list 3. The url (link) to that organisation should be different 4. You have any other comments Happy modelling! Pieter
A short XBeach grid creation tutorial has become available here: http://oss.deltares.nl/web/xbeach/manuals The tutorial makes use of the Matlab XBeach toolbox, which can be downloaded here: http://oss.deltares.nl/web/xbeach/tools If there are any questions or suggestions regarding the tutorial, please post them in the discussion board...
A new export of the Matlab toolbox is uploaded: http://oss.deltares.nl/web/xbeach/tools. The export is not fully tested, but should contain a large part of the actual toolbox functionality. The discussion board recently received quite a few posts regarding old bugs in the toolbox. Hopefully the new export solves these issues. The best alternative is still to use a Subversion working...
As of revision 2871, the xbeach solution and project files for Visual studio (2008 and 2010) contain configurations for compiling xbeach as a 64-bit executable (x64) instead of a win32 application (x86). Due to the fact that we do not have a 64 version of the netcdf library yet, netcdf configurations will have to wait a little. We are still working on that. To compile XBeach for an...
Today we released a new version of XBeach! You can download pre-build executables from the download page or build your own be referring to the following Subversion tag: https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/xbeach/tags/2012-04-06-XBeach-V19-easter The last release is from July 14th 2010 (Quatorze Juillet) and a lot has changed since then. This release (Easter) is more robust, has a variety...
Today, we unexpectedly started an issue tracker for XBeach. You can find it here: http://oss.deltares.nl/web/xbeach/issue-tracker/ At this moment, the issue tracker is not yet connected to the OSS login, so you can only login using the guest account (both username and password are "guest"). Any posts are therefore not yet attached to a specific user. Please be so kind to mention your name...
In revisions 2660 to 2687 old branches have been deleted to cleanup unused branches. The last revision commits a file with a list of the branches that got deleted (including the exact revision number). If one of the branches was still active or someone needs information from a deleted branch, it is possible to restore the branch locally or on the repos. Therefore one needs to: *...
I have tested the XBeach sourcecode with cygwin. I tested it with the following software: libnetcdf-devel (install through the setup.exe from cygwin). libnetcdf pkg-config automake autoconf libtool gfortran (4.5) I tested xbeach with mpi and netcdf. I compiled and installed mpi by hand because mpi is not available by default in the setup from cygwin and because...
Since the release of this XBeach Open-Source Software (OSS) portal, the XBeach Subversion (SVN) repository is migrated to a new location. The same is true for the OpenEarth repositories. The old repository is read-only now and will not receive any updates. If you used other repositories than the XBeach and OpenEarth repositories at the old location, your account will still be valid for those...
