Welcome to XBeachMI’s documentation!¶
XBeach MI (Multiple Instances) is a Python wrapper for XBeach that allows the user to run multiple instances of XBeach simultaneously. Each instance can have its own settings. Possible applications are:
- Running XBeach in stationairy and instationairy mode alternating depending on the wave conditions
- Running XBeach with multiple wind conditions and averaging the result (MORMERGE)
A BMI-compatible version of XBeach is needed to use with the XBeach MI Python wrapper. The wrapper itself is also BMI compatible.
The XBeach MI wrapper can be executed from the command-line using the “xbeach-mi” command. See for more information the –help option.
