This report describes the development of a mathematical model of a shingle beach with groynes. The development of the beach plan shape is calculated given information on its initial position and information on wave conditions just offshore. Different groyne profiles and spacings can be specified, so that alternative groyne systems can be investigated. The model includes a method for dealing with varying water levels as the result of tidal rise and fall.
