    This paper presents the results of the II Tidal Flow Forum experiment of the English Channel and the southern North Sea. The model applies the FADI (falsified alternating direction implicit) scheme and uses the data base of the Tidal Forum. Discrepancies between the model results and the distributed field data of 11 tide stations and 8 tidal current measurement points are shown graphically and are quantified by calculating the RMS (root mean square) errors and the standard deviations. Sensitivity tests have been carried out by changing some parameters (frictions, Coriolis, ...). The results which best fit the reference data were obtained by using the Manning's friction law. By doing so, the model can more appropriately adapt the complex bathymetry.
