Historically, the study of dredging processes has depended on physical laboratory tests. The IH-Dredge model has been developed to simulate these processes numerically. It simulates the evolution of the seabed, sediment and toxic substances involved in dredging operations. The model has been calibrated and validated with experimental data, and it has been applied in a dredging operation in the Port of Marin, Spain.
