Dr. Ram Mohan, Adjunct Professor at Texas A&M University and Senior Partner with Anchor QEA, organized and moderated the 47th Dredging Engineering Short Course, held January 8-12, 2018 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
The 70 participants were one of the largest classes in the past ten years, and comprised of participants from the United States, Canada, Egypt, Indonesia, Columbia, and Peru.
A wide range of dredging and dredged material placement topics were covered that include: dredge pump and slurry pipe flow principles, sediment resuspension, basic geotechnical engineering and dikes, dredge project cost estimating, dredge laws, cutter suction & hopper dredges & dredge automation, modeling large and small hydraulic dredges, mechanical and environmental dredging, etc.
“The short course has turned into a highly sought out engineering and project management training for entry and mid-level project managers in the dredging industry,” commented Dr. Mohan.
The 48th Dredging Engineering Short Course is scheduled for January 7-11, 2019 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
