The port of Antwerp together with .Ocean Nautical Innovations have carried out an extensive research program in 2012-2013 investigating the physical processes of the settled mud in the Deurganckdok, with the goal to find ways to optimize the dredging strategy. In this research program some state-of-the-art instruments were being used to measure the different properties of the mud, among which the newly developed free fall penetrometer Graviprobe from .Ocean Nautical Innovations.
In a first stage, mud from the Deurganckdok was put in a test facility where the environment could be controlled. In this way the influence of different parameters on the consolidation process could be distinguished. In a second stage, in situ measurements were carried out in the Deurganckdok during different moments in time. This paper describes the results of all measurements as well as the conclusions related to the possible optimization of the dredging works in the Deurganckdok.
