Abstract

The cost of dredging in order to provide access for ships and other vessels can be a large component of a project. There is an initial capital cost involved in creating a dredged area and the subsequent recurring cost of maintenance. In creating a dredged area, material is removed to the required depth leaving side walls sloping up to original bed level. With the passage of time material will accumulate in the dredged section, some having been carried in suspension by the water, and possibly some resulting from gradual failure of the side slopes. In this review we consider the stability of side slopes dredged in cohesive soils.
