Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: Research needs relative to prediction of dredging difficulty in rock materials are identified and discussed. Proceedings of the 25- 26 July 1985 Corps of Engineers workshop on rock dredging problems are summarized; primary purpose of the workshop was to determine tne direction of future research for the Civil Works Investigation Study work unit on the dredgeability of rock. A plan of study is proposed for developing a dredgeability rating scheme for rock based on the given outline of rock dredging problem background, as identified prior to the workshop, and the topics discussed during the workshop. These topics included rock dredging case history reviews, existing predictive methods for dredge performance, exploration and design methods, and the relation of a solution for the problem at hand to the legal aspects of rock dredging claims.
