Abstract

Beneficial use of sediments is known as a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to confined disposal facilities and open water disposal. Since most of the geotechnical engineering applications such as roads, backfills, berms, and in situ capping require a large amount of material in their construction, the beneficial use of dredged materials in geotechnical engineering applications is a promising implementation. In this study, sediment dredging and management are introduced. The beneficial use of dredged materials in geotechnical engineering applications is reviewed, and the necessary requirements for their beneficial use in these applications are addressed.
