A quick impression will be given here of what can be done with SWASH and to get an idea of the validation performance of SWASH. A number of analytical and laboratory test cases have been selected to convey the capabilities of the model to deal with several processes such as wave propagation, dispersion, refraction, diffraction, flooding and drying, moving shoreline, hydraulic jumps, cross-shore motions of irregular breaking waves, surf beats, infragravity waves, short crestness, nearshore circulations, setups induced by breaking waves, waves against a strong current, wave growth by wind, and buoyancy driven flows.
