This technical note describes a knowledge-based expert system KBES computer program, Geotechnical Factors in DREDGeABiLity DREDGABAL, which was developed as part of the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Stations WES Dredging Research Program DRP. The program is intended to serve the dredging community as a geotechnical engineering consultant. DREDGABL provides guidance in the suitability of various types of dredging equipment for specific sediment types whose properties are described in the contract documents. Sediments descriptions are assumed to be available in the Unified Soil Classification System USCS and America Society for Testing and Materials ASTM format.
