Abstract : This paper answers the following questions: o What is sand closure and what are its advantages? o What are the processes involved? o How are the processes simulated in mathematical models? o What is the value of the computed results for the determination of the optimum execution method? In the field of sand closures a new terminology has developed. The major definitions are given herein. A summary is also given of a number of sand closures, comparing the losses of sediment during the operations.
