This paper presents a three-dimensional breaking wave model to investigate the spatial and temporal variation of fluid motions under breaking waves. A three-dimensional Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is used to solve the governing equations for the flow parameters. Fluid motions in the area near the breakwater and its turbulences as well as wave overtopping on an inclined breakwater are investigated. Through the model, the spatial and temporal variations of the hydrodynamic problems of breaking waves on a breakwater are examined.
