Abstract:

Simulations of station keeping and burial of a dead weight anchor device were performed using the Vortex Lattice Mine BurialMigration Model VORTEX. The VORTEX model was developed at Scripps Institution of Oceanography under previous ONR funding, Inman and Jenkins, 2002 Jenkins and Inman 2002, Jenkins and Wasyl 2006. This model has been validated in field experiments conducted under ONRs Mine Burial Program.
