A method for deterministic reproduction of non-linear long-crested waves has been implemented. The model is used for non-linear reproduction of measured wave time series from a model test programme in a wave flume. Regular waves, irregular waves and focused waves have been reproduced with the model. Based on measured surface elevation time series at one location in the flume the elevation time series and the kinematics have been reproduced at another location using both linear theory and the second order model. The numerical results have been compared with measurements and it is found that the second order model is able to reproduce the correct shape of the waves as they propagate in the flume — even when the waves are highly non-linear.
