Many problems in coastal zones are subjected to complex physical phenomenon which are not possible to be analyzed separately. In accordance to present IT acquirement and available hardware set up, one of possible approaches to handle coastal problems is numerical modeling.
Hereby, we deal with numerical modeling of wave transform and beach sediment transport, combining FEM and FD schemes. Wave transform relies on off shore wave parameter spectra and spatial discretization of the domain. Typical output can be selected within wave height, wave length, wave propagation direction, wave breaking and wave phase. Beach sediment transport modeling handles different model domains and selective number of input parameters.
