Soft mud: field performance related to lab experiments, modelling and analysis of time-dependent processes affecting consolidation
Self-weight consolidation plays a major role in the creation of land using mud, the ripening of mud layers and, also, in the storage of contaminated mud and slurries in ponds.
Can a ‘Mud Motor’ of dredged sediment help enhance salt marsh development naturally?
Following the Building with Nature concept, a pilot study was conducted introducing finegrained dredged sediments as a semicontinuous source of mud into a shallow tidal channel, naturally dispersing sediment to nearby mudflats and salt marshes.
Can a lake’s ecology be restored with unwanted sediment?
In collaboration with the Natuurmonumenten (the Dutch Society for the Preservation of Nature), Boskalis constructed the Marker Wadden. The archipelago situated within the Markermeer enables processes which revitalise the natural ecology.
How navigable are fluid mud layers?
Safe navigation through ports and waterways is determined by the space available under a ship's keel, but a seabed of fluid mud can get in the way.
Uncertainty Analysis of the Mud Infill Prediction of the Oklng Approach Channel
To take well-founded financial decisions, help manage risks and reduce uncertainty, a model for calculating the probabilistic assessment of maintenance dredging volumes was developed using the Olokola LNG project near Lagos, Nigeria, as an example.
15 Years Experience with Fluid Mud: Definition of the Nautical Bottom with Rheological Parameters
In the contract of 1954 between the German Federal Waterways Administration and the newly formed Water and Land Federation Emden-Riepe, the Federation relinquished agricultural land within the Emden-Riepe Lowland to the Association of Port Operators to accommodate sediment from the Port of Emd.
Suspended Sediment Circulation in Semi-enclosed Docks, Puerto Galván, Argentina.
Studies reveal some interesting and surprising features about circulation and the fluid mud layer in an important harbour area.
