The design and management of coastal engineering works, like harbours or coastal defence structures, requires the simulation of the hydrodynamic phenomena that characterize the nearshore region “ante operam” and “post operam”. The simulation of wave fields and wave-induced nearshore currents is necessary, both to evaluate the actions exerted by the sea on coastal structures and to forecast the effect produced by these structures on the shoreline’s morphological evolution. In fact, wave motion and wave-induced nearshore currents, besides exerting a mechanical pull on the coastal structure, are mainly responsible for coastal sediment transport phenomena.
This Special Issue focuses on the numerical simulation of wave fields and wave-induced currents in coastal areas. It welcomes research into all aspects of numerical models for the simulation of free-surface elevation and velocity fields induced by wave motion. The topics of this Special Issue range from new numerical schemes for the simulation of wave propagation and evolution from deep water to shoreline, to numerical investigation of specific problems, like wave-breaking, turbulence models, swash zone hydrodynamics, or the simulation of the oscillating wave boundary layer. Original contributions are encouraged concerning the theoretical aspects of the numerical model, specific aspects of the adopted numerical scheme, or the application of the numerical model to a practical engineering case study.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
