Abstract: Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes the implementation of a dredging module (DM) within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Coastal Modeling System (CMS). The DM simulates one or more dredging operations during a CMS simulation and provides options for the dredging and placement of material. The DM may be used in studies such as estimating future dredging requirements, evaluating alternative dredging operations, and analyzing morphologic consequences of dredging operations. A coastal application at St. Marys Entrance Channel, FL, is provided to illustrate the setup procedure and demonstrate the model capability.
