THE HYDRAULIC DREDGING AND PUMPING OF LAKE AREA DEPOSITS

V. H. Pfarrer

Abstract


First let me say that it is a sincere pleasure and an honor to address such a distinguished audience. More people should be made aware of the work that you are doing in the protection of our shores and coastline. It is a great satisfaction to me to he associated with an industry that is instrumental in rebuilding our shores along the lines of your extensive studies and recommendations. I recall laboring over the trochoidal wave theory in my study of naval architecture quite a few years ago. Frankly, it is not used very much in dredge design except in the larger molded form sea going hopper dredges. There is no doubt that you have made great strides in the theory of wave motion and transmitted energy since that time.
