Abstract

Calculation of dredging volume is very critical for project estimation and implementation. Many methods are available to compute the dredging volume and most of them are complex and expensive too. This paper pro-poses a simple grid volume numerical model to calculate the dredging volume. A case study conducted at Sharm Obhur, the Red Sea, using the grid volume model and quantitative analysis, was carried out. The study pointed out that the grid volume model is more precise and faster compared to other commercially available methods. The study has great practical potential for project plans, estimations and developments in the maritime sector.
