When dredging in sensitive environments, efforts have to be made to limit the free dispersal of suspended fine sediment from the dredging spill. Especially the use of hanging silt curtains as an environmental mitigation measure is widespread. Despite frequent application, their ability to reduce turbidity levels through vertical diversion of...

3D CFD simulations, lab experiments and field measurements are used to get more understanding of the turbulent near field overflow dredging plume mixing. The focus has been on the most often used dredging vessel: a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD). Near field overflow dredging plume mixing is important because it determines the far field...
