XBeach is improved and extended on almost daily basis. Approximately each year we try to consolidate all changes of the past year in a stable release of XBeach. The latest releases are listed below. Be aware that these releases might lag behind quite a bit with respect to, for example, the features present in the daily builds. Make sure that any problems that you experience with these executables are not solved in the daily builds yet before asking for support.
XBeach is tested and validated automatically and also (almost) on a daily basis (see Validation). For these tests, XBeach is compiled on an (almost) daily basis as well. These executables are published automatically to the list below. In order to run the NetCDF version these additional files should be on the system path (by placing them next to the executable for example).
Here you can find the XBeach model in a variety of flavours. First, we distinguish the source code and the pre-compiled executables. The source code can be obtained from the Subversion repository, while pre-compiled executables come in daily versions or (approximately) yearly releases. Second, we distinguish different types of executables. When compiling XBeach yourself, you can choose whatever type you like, but the pre-compiled executables come in four variations:
MPI (Message Passing Interface)
MPI + netCDF
The regular type of XBeach does not support parallel processing (MPI), nor netCDF output. The MPI version supports parallel processing using MPICH2. The netCDF version supports the netCDF output format. And of course the MPI + netCDF version supports both. All, but the reguar type need external libraries to run, which are freely available (also at the bottom of this page).
If you really need to be state of the art in XBeach modelling, you can obtain the source code from the Subversion repository and compile it yourself. You can use the same credentials you use to login to this portal website. If you do not have a username yet, please register through the link in the upper-right corner of this page. You can find a compilation manual in the Get started section.
We have a number of prebuild Xbeach releases to download. This way you can be up and running quicker, but you might not be up to date with the latest release. You can find links to the prebuilds here or on https://download.deltares.nl/en/download/xbeach-open-source/
