Abstract : The purpose of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is to demonstrate application of three popular and readily available shoreline change models employing the one-line approach (GenCade, Unibest CL+, and Litpack). This CHETN is the final report in a two-part desktop study to compare oneline shoreline change models. Thomas and Frey (2013), the first report in this series, documented the differences and similarities in the most popular and available shoreline change models employing the one-line approach. This report will demonstrate application of three popular models discussed in Thomas and Frey (2013). To demonstrate application of those models, a series of simple, idealized cases was run with Unibest CL+ 7.1 (Deltares 2011), Litpack within the Mike Zero 2011 software package (Delft Hydraulic Institute (DHI) 2009), and GenCade 1.0 (Frey et al. 2012). The standard benchmark cases tested were developed and originally presented in Frey et al. (2012) and are separated into the primary coastal structures and components that are frequently applied in GenCade. A detailed description of capabilities and limitations of each model is presented in Thomas and Frey (2013).
