An Analytical Approach to the Sedimentation Process in Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers


A number of theories are used (Camp, Groot, Miedema and Vlasblom, Yagi, Braaksma, Ooijens and van Rhee) to determine the overflow losses when loading trailing suction hopper dredgers. The model derived here has several important improvements, including the speed of doing the calculations.
