Image source: IADC

International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) recently released a new article titled “Numerical investigation of the head and unsteady flow characteristics of a dredge pump loading high-concentration sands”.

The article presents research which numerically simulates the unsteady water flow and silt-laden flow in a dredge pump and comparatively analyses the unsteady characteristics of the pump performance and the flow field in three typical conditions to expound the influence of sands and the relationship between head and flow field.

The research object is a three-blade dredge pump and the calculation domain includes a suction pipe, an impeller, a volute casing and two sidewall gaps beside the impeller shrouds.

Auhthors of the article are Cao Lei (R&D Engineer at CCCC National Engineering Research Center of Dredging Technology and Equipment CO. LTD), Wang Zheng-wei (Professor in the Department of Energy and Power Engineering at Tsinghua University), and Zheng Lin-zhu (Director of the Equipment Design & Research Institute, CCCC National Engineering Research Center of Dredging Technology and Equipment CO. LTD.)

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
