Figure 16. Variability between cumulative grain size distributions (weight vs. volume basis) for identical
materials
SUMMARY: Accurately predicting geotechnical property changes in the sediment and dredged
material cycle (pre-dredged, post-dredged, pre-placement, and post-placement) involves a degree
of uncertainty. Assigning parameters for sediment and dredged material properties may be chal-
lenging due to differences in reporting methods and lack of available information on material
characteristics during any given stage of the dredging operation.
Comparisons of material physical and engineering behavior properties before, during, and after
selected dredging operations show that quantifiable changes occur and those changes may
depend on unknown relationships in the dredging process. Acquiring better understanding of the
relationships between changed material properties and dredging operations will eventually
enable better predictions for economical project planning, permitting, design, construction,
operation, and management.
