Abstract : In the disposal of dredged material in reclamation areas, the relationship between the volume of the dredged soil and the volume of the reclamation area must be rectified for proper disposal. This report describes the results of a study on the state of sedimentation of soil particles and the state of consolidation of deposited soil for a tested reclamation area, an analytical method for self-weight consolidation of deposited soil, a comparison between the measured and theoretical results for an indoor deposition model, and a simple method for predicting the required volume for a reclamation area.
