Abstract:The study into the regeneration of tidal sand waves after dredging becomes more and more important as offshore infrastructure becomes more demanding. In order to gain insight in the modeling of the regeneration of sand waves, this study is split up in two parts. The first part assesses the performance of a numerical model to predict the regeneration behavior of tidal sand waves after dredging. The second part focuses on the practical application of different dredging strategies, as well as whether the regeneration behavior of sand waves can be modeled and predicted for practical applications by using this numerical model. Sand extraction sites on the Kwinte Bank in the Belgian North Sea are used as study sites in this research. Two transects that represent a dredged, and a undredged cross-section are determined and analyzed in order to gain insight in the wave height, wavelength, growth rates, and migration rates of the sand waves in the study site. The depth along both transects varied between 6.8
