Central Dredging Association (CEDA) today announced that a new book, written by Dr. ir. Sape Miedema, Associate Professor Offshore & Dredging Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands, has been added to the professional literature on dredging.

Entitled “The Delft Sand, Clay and Rock Cutting Model” and published by Delft University Press the book provides an overview of cutting theories. It begins with a generic model, valid for all types of soil (sand, clay and rock), and continues with the specifics of: dry sand, water-saturated sand, clay, atmospheric rock and hyperbaric rock.

Small blade angles and large blade angles are discussed for each soil type, and for each case considered the equations/model for cutting forces, power and specific energy are given.

With models verified by laboratory research, principally from the Delft University of Technology, and data from other recognized sources, this book will prove an invaluable reference o the dredging community.
