Laboratory experiments on two dimensional beach transformation were performed under irregular wave conditions. Wave deformations, near bottom velocities, ripple dimensions and beach profile changes were measured. The net sediment transport rate was calculated from beach profile changes. The rate was also obtained by applying the sediment transport model of Shibayama and Horikawa (1985) to individual half wave of irregular wave history. These two results of transport rate were compared and a good agreement was seen.
