Hydraulic dredging is an extremely complicated process and much is unknown and remains to be discovered about its nature. Soil, operation, and other considerations vary considerably; therefore, actual on-the-job field dredging projects must be employed to gather information and overcome these gaps in dredging knowledge. Methods and equipment are examined for use in overcoming those obstacles that inhibit or eliminate the feedback of information from real dredging situations.
