Study on siltation for implementation of nautical depth concept in Cochin Port, India

The assignment for the Cochin Port Trust consists of four main parts: (1) collect field data collection to feed the simulation models (2) conduct hydrodynamic and empirical numerical model studies to research the siltation causes and remedies (3) set up and validate a nautical simulation model and (4) establish and apply an operational measurement practice to implement the nautical depth and derive dredging volumes.

Fluves is mainly involved in the parts (1) and (4). Monitoring systems are ADCP’s, meteorological measurements and fluid mud characterization.

Fluves is responsable for the project management for this study. Fluves is subcontractor for Antea Group.
