A discussion of 3D model verification and calibration based on measurements in a flume is carried out for different test cases (groyne, harbor). The measurement data is available for public access. The numerical 3D model is based on the Finite Element Method using a multilayer approach in the vertical direction. The goal is to show how different terms in the model equations may be tested in their interaction and to which limit the parameterizations are valid.
