Abstract: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) presents an analysis of the change in fine grained sediments (fines), comprised of silt and clay sized particles, content through hydraulic placement of sand on the beach through the dredging process during beach nourishment projects. The investigation sought to better understand the percentage of fines lost during hydraulic placement to provide greater confidence that sand sources with fines content greater than 5% are suitable for beach or nearshore placement. This analysis, which utilizes sediments from projects within the State of Florida, may be used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and by regulatory agencies such as the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) to guide decision making when designating dredged material for offshore disposal, nearshore, or beach placement, as part of navigational operation and maintenance projects (O&M) and shore protection projects (SPP).
