The capabilities of SPH models to deal with complex scenarios involving real geometries and extreme events are shown for different applications. The model not only is able to capture the main features of complex flows, but also allows including objects that can move due to the force exerted by the fluid. This is of special interest to reproduce the flooding of coastal areas, where water can move cars, pieces of urban furniture or debris.
