A numerical model was developed for random wave deformation and the resultant beach profile change. The model consisted of short-wave model based on parabolic equation, long-wave model based on depth-integrated long wave equation and sand transport model utilizing various sediment transport rate formulas. The applicability of the model was confirmed with experimental data obtained by Mimura et al. (1986).
