AbstractSandy beaches are typically in equilibrium with the wave climate, and changes occur when the system is perturbed. However, changes to nearshore morphology can occur when coastal structures are built and the system adjusts to a new equilibrium. An example of this is the construction of a shore-perpendicular groin that is designed to trap sediment . We investigate the capability of Delft3D model to simulate wave transformation, nearshore circulation and morphology change around a structure, driven by relatively small breaking waves at a very high incident angle.
