In this study, a numerical model is developed to determine shoreline changes due to wind wave induced longshore sediment transport, by solving sediment continuity equation and taking one line theory as a base, in existence of seawalls, groins, T-groins, offshore breakwaters and beach nourishment projects, whose dimensions and locations may be given arbitrarily. The model computes the transformation of deep water wave characteristics up to the surf zone and eventually gives the result of shoreline changes with user-friendly visual outputs. A method of representative wave input as annual average wave characteristics is presented. Compatibility of the currently developed tool is tested by a case study and it is shown that the results, obtained from the model, are in good agreement qualitatively with field measurements. In the scope of this study, input manner of long term annual wave data into model in miscellaneous ways is also discussed.
