Suction dredge-mobile separator system function in soil sanding treatment

Proceedings 15th ICID European Regional Conference: 215-220

Suction dredge-mobile separator system function in soil sanding treatment

The paper describes a method for sanding hydromorphic soil. The method involves dredging sand from a river and spreading it over adjacent land. A mobile separator has been designed to enable the sand to be evenly distributed over the plot and to return water back to the river instead of flooding the land. The paper examines how the mobile separator-dredge system could be developed to work automatically.
