It is commonly known that beach physical models are influenced by scale effects. Scale effects may be minimized by using large models. Nevertheless, since large models require costly facilities, it would be very important to individuate a method for the evaluation of scale effects. The main purpose of such method would be to re-scale the model results in order to reconstruct the prototype beach profile. Numerical beach profile models may be used in order to analyse the physical processes which regulate scale effects. In the present paper a first attempt in this direction is presented.
