CEDA’s 5th Webinar on Slurry Transport Models

Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will hold its next webinar – An overview of slurry transport models – on Tuesday, November 22nd 2016.

The webinar is the 5th webinar in the CEDA Series of Webinars on Dredging Technology.

This Practitioner level webinar is meant for professionals working in the field of dredging or adjacent to it with no formal education/training in and /or with limited experience with dredging equipment and technology: engineers, scientists, lawyers, financiers working on projects involving dredging either as project owner/developer, regulator, consultant, financier, legal advisers.

The presenter for the webinar is Dr. ir. Sape Miedema, Associate Professor of Dredging Engineering. In 1987 he was the first person in the world obtaining a PhD degree in Dredging.

He is the author of about 150 scientific publications and of the books: The Delft Sand, Clay & Rock Cutting Model and Slurry Transport, Fundamentals, a Historical Overview and the Delft Head Loss & Limit Deposit Velocity Framework.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  1. History.
  2. Different types of graphs.
  3. Empirical models.
  4. Mechanistic models.
  5. The Limit Deposit Velocity and the Limit of Stationary Deposit Velocity.
  6. Which model to use and when.
