Abstract:

This paper answers the following questions o What is sand closure and what are its advantages o What are the processes involved o How are the processes simulated in mathematical models o What is the value of the computed results for the determination of the optimum execution method In the field of sand closures a new terminology has developed. The major definitions are given herein. A summary is also given of a number of sand closures, comparing the losses of sediment during the operations.
