AbstractThree open-source CFD models are applied to reproduce large-scale experiments of coastal wave impacts in shallow foreshore conditions: (1) a RANS model (OpenFOAM), (2) a weakly compressible SPH model (DualSPHysics), and (3) a non-hydrostatic NLSW equations model (SWASH). An inter-model comparison is done both qualitatively (time series, snapshots) and quantitatively (model performance and pattern statistics) to determine their practical applicability for this case.
