The free surface simulation of breaking waves is studied using a combination of VOF and RANS closures. Further, a numerical model for the detailed study of sediment transport and morphological development is presented. In the present study it is applied to the case of sediment transport in the surf zone. The temporal change of a cross shore beach profile under both regular and bichromatic waves is considered. The dependency on the morphological time scale on the regularity of the incident waves is discussed. The feedback onto the hydrodynamics due to a changing bed level is discussed in the case of regular waves.
