This study outlines the critical links in the dredging system chain, and develops and discusses methods for overcoming those obstacles that inhibit or eliminate feedback that is so vital to future projects. A computer model of a hydraulic dredging system is developed and used to examine the four major limitations on solids output--horsepower, cavitation, lime plugging and dislodgement limits. A full-scale feedback program also is developed.
