Adding Dynamics to the Camp Model for the Calculation of Overflow Losses
Adding Dynamics to the Camp Model for the Calculation of Overflow Losses

An IADC "Most Promising Student" Award has been presented to a graduate of TU Delft for his thesis which describes the dynamics of hopper loading both in simulation and as compared with actual measurements onboard a TSHD.

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.
