Abstract: The hydraulic feasibility of the proposed navigation channel from Shuwaikh to the offshore area in Sulaibikhat Bay was studied. Channel width and alignment were determined considering the planned use of channel, current and wind forces and the dimensions of vessels using the channel. The volume of total dredging involved was calculated. The maintenance dredging requirements were determined by the volume cut and bottom area methods. A suitable location for disposal of dredged material was identified.
