Abstract:

The Dredged-Material Disposal Management Model, D2M2, is a simulation-optimization model designed to provide information required to answer the following disposal management questions 1 If a specified long-term operation policy is followed for an existing or proposed dredged-material disposal system, what is the final status of the system, given the initial conditions, system physical and economic characteristics, and dredged-material volume estimates What is the cost of following the operation policy Must additional disposal-site capacity be provided 2 What is the least-costly long-term operation policy for an existing or proposed disposal system, given initial conditions, system physical and economic characteristics, and dredged- material volume estimates 3 What is the least-costly method to provide the additional volume required Should expired leases be extended or should new sites be acquired 4 If new sites are to be acquired, what is the least-costly combination of sites What is the least-costly sequence for acquiring these sites and 5 Are alternative material-management alternatives, such as transferring material or resting sites, cost effective
