IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Nearshore compound simulation by a boussinesq-type wave model
A two-dimensional, in the horizontal plane, high order Boussinesq-type model is presented to simulate wave propagation
in the nearshore zone. The model is extended to the surf zone by applying a wave breaking module of the eddy viscosity
type and to the swash zone by applying a modified narrow slot technique. Bottom friction and subgrid turbulent mixing are
also incorporated. The numerical model relies on a generalized multi-step predictor-corrector scheme. Both the one- and
two-dimensional model versions are verified with a number of experimental cases involving regular and irregular wave
propagation in the nearshore. A comparison with a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model is also included. In
general, the agreement is satisfactory and most of the nearshore phenomena are accurately reproduced.
