Most numerical studies of sediment transport in the swash zone use depth-averaged models. However, such models still have difficulty predicting transport rates and morphodynamics. Depth-resolving models could give detailed insight in swash processes but have mostly been limited to hydrodynamic predictions. We present a depth-resolving numerical model, based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations, capable of modelling sediment transport and morphodynamics in the swash zone.
