    The capability of the meshless model DualSPHysics to reproduce violent wave impacts on sea walls with horizontal cantilever slabs is assessed. Physical model tests were carried out at Ghent University using monochromatic waves with different wave conditions at the toe of the structure. The free-surface elevation along the flume and the forces exerted onto the vertical part of the structure obtained with DualSPHysics were compared with experimental measurements, showing a good accuracy. In addition, both the efficiency and reliability of DualSPHysics were compared with those of IHFOAM, which is a state-of-theart mesh-based model. Both models have shown a similar performance and accuracy, which suggests that meshless methods have attained the required level of maturity to be used for engineering purposes.

    The present report includes and integrates the work contained in a research paper submitted for publication to Computers & Fluids.
