Abstract : The Dredged Material Disposal Management Model (D2M2) is a simulation-optimization model designed to provide information required to answer the following disposal management questions: a. If a specified long-term operation policy is followed for an existing or proposed dredged material disposal system, what is the final status of the system, given the initial conditions, system physical and economic characteristics, and dredged material volume estimates? Must additional disposal site capacity be provided? b. What is the least costly long-term operation policy for an existing or proposed disposal system, given initial conditions, system physical and economic characteristics, and dredged material volume estimates? c. What is the least costly method to provide the additional volume required? Should expired leases be extended, or should new sites be acquired? d. If new sites are to be acquired, what is the least costly combination of sites? What is the least costly combination of sites? What is the least costly sequence for acquiring these sites. e. Are material management alternatives, such as transferring material or resting sites, cost effective?
