Abstract: Feasibility studies of new dredge intake and cutterhead shielding techniques were conducted to improve hydraulic cutterhead dredge performance. Simple modification of the suction mouth to the intake piping and utilizing both internal as well as external dredge cutter shrouds have been found to significantly improve the production of a cutter suction dredge model.
