This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes the use of the Dredging Module DM with multiple grain-size sediment transport 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. Simulating multiple sediment grain-sizes within the DM includes representation of the transport of discrete grain size fractions for material placement. An application to an idealized coastal area is provided to illustrate the setup procedure and demonstrate the model capability.
