    A benchmarking database for UNIBEST-TC and Delft3D-MOR has been implemented with the objective to facilitate testing of various model settings. The database (Chapter 2) has been sub-divided into separate datasets, in which a number of cases are defined. This structure implies that running a simple script file in a case directory automatically runs the model and produces plots that compare the model output with available measurements at predefined moments and places. The clear database structure allows a user to straightforwardly insert a new dataset. Up to now, 11 data sets have been implemented for UNIBEST-TC, as described in Chapter 3 and 4. The data sets include both laboratory and field measurements. The majority of the datasets have been selected for their applicability to enable the testing of various hydrodynamic physical processes, such as wave height, and cross-shore and longshore velocity. Various other also include sediment transport information and profile development. Besides comparison of model results and experiments, the benchmarking database facilitates statistical error analysis, of which various examples are shown in Chapter 5. The benchmarking database for Delft3D-MOR is described in Chapter 6. A list of conclusions and recommendations is given in Chapter 7.
