Dredge info Websites?

How about posting a list of dredge related websites - design, theory, components, etc?

RE: Dredge info Websites?

Thanks Dave - Been there, but I was thinking along the lines of design / tech info that folks really use. Stuff that may not be obvious in a search, without having to sort thru 100's of links....

RE: Dredge info Websites?

What kind of design information are you looking for?

If you're looking for ship channel design - that is not necessarily dredging design, there are some good books out there, especially Per Brunne's "Port and Harbor Engineering" that's what the channel designers use.

For dredging,  the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's various manuals, http://www.usace.army.mil/publications/, with lots of useful, practical information, cannot be beat.

Dredging engineering typically has two main elements: how to get the material out of the channel and where to put it. Herbich's "Dredging Engineering Handbook" is a good source if you're looking for a "jump start" on dredging engineering.

Texas A&M has a huge dredging program and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has an enormous amount of its resources devoted to dredging. Check out this site: http://education.wes.army.mil/navigation/navigate.html.

The sea bed leveller is a specialisation of damen shipyard in Netherlands Most of the successful levellers have been made by them. A google search yielded a number of images including UKD Sea horse, Tug and plougboat Runner etc.,
