Abstract. The paper considers two-dimensional numerical simulation of nonlinear gravity wave run-up to a steep coastal slope. The problem is formulated, boundary and initial conditions are described, the numerical model is based on Navier-Stokes equations. The discrete model is constructed using the method of splitting with respect to physical processes. A discrete finite-element model of this problem is developed taking into account the cell fill factor. Two-dimensional run-up model of a surface wave to a steep coastal slope, generation of reflected run back and their superposition are presented.
