Breaking Wave Simulation

Can some one help me to find a publication or an application a bout using CFD code for simulating non-breaking and breaking surface waves on a beach (model and equations...), employing the VOF (Volume Of Fluid) algorithm or other method for the free surface.

If some one does have a pulication a bout this subject, please send me it in PDF file or other by E-mail. Or at this adress:

Re: Breaking Wave Simulation
I used a RANSE/VOF method (STAR-CD) in my Phd work to simulate (breaking) waves interacting with an artificial reef for coastal protection.

You can find my thesis (german) at

and further Information and Papers (english) on

Best regards Rolf
