The mechanics of a surf-zone plunging breaker are studied from Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements and a numerical model based on the Navier-Stokes equations, using a Volume of Fluid (VOF) method. An additional numerical model using a Boundary-Integral Method (BIM) is also used in order to generate input conditions for the main numerical model. The PIV measurements were performed at the University of Edinburgh and then compared against the results found by the numerical model developed at DHI Water and Environment. Good agreement is found, throughout the breaking process, between the velocity fields of the plunging breaker measured using PIV and those predicted by the numerical model.
