This is a summary report of the work conducted by Hydraulics Research between April 1985 and March 1987 on a contract funded by the Department of the Environment. This work was also partly funded by the British Ports Federation (BPF). The work described in this report comprises those aspects of the main contract which are relevant to BPF, namely, the dispersal of dredged material disposed of at open-water sites. The results of the work are presented as far as possible in engineering terms and practical applications of the work are highlighted. The objectives of the work of interest to BPF were to develop an economic computational model to predict the dispersion of dredged material, and to monitor a dredged river and related disposal site to determine the concentrations of heavy metals on the sediments.
