Can a preliminary model describe CSD spillage due to centrifugal advection?

Depending on its size and installed power, a Cutter Suction Dredger is capable of cutting a wide range of soil types. Although precise and relatively efficient, a CSD can spill significantly. The authors propose a preliminary model which describes spillage due to centrifugal advection.

Losses of fill can occur for several reasons and can result in not meeting the quantity of fill required for the dredging operation.

The process that takes place in the sedimentation tanks of water treatment plants is similar to the hopper loading process and can provide a theoretical model for trailing suction hopper dredgers.
