THE SPREADING OF DREDGING SPOILS DURING CONSTRUCTION OF THE DENMARK-SWEDEN LINK

Ida Broker, John Johnsen, Morten Lintrup, Anders Jensen, Jacob Steen Moller

Abstract


An overview of the model complex, including a combined Lagrangian and Eulerian approach to simulation of sediment transport, developed to study spreading of dredging spoils in connection with off-shore earth works necessary for construction of the Denmark-Sweden Link is provided; - together with in-depth descriptions of two particular work topics: (a) Model representation of flow friction to allow application of an inherently depth-integrated model system to a partially stratified environment, and (b) overall design of the model complex to make it fit as a versatile tool at several stages of this large project.

Keywords
