Leveraging the Dredge Cycle at the Gippsland Lakes: Simulating with Autodesk CFD

The design opportunities made possible through leveraging dredging infrastructure have been a point of interest for designers, academics and government bodies. Sea level rise, increased storm surge frequency and intensity caused by climate change mean that the 80 % of the world’s population living in coastal communities face the effects of land loss, flooding and erosion. Landscape architects have begun to explore the possibilities of working with dredging resources through engaging with scientific data and employing engineering methods of physical and digital testing as part of an evidencebased design process. This paper explores the potential of using a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation tool (Autodesk CDFD) in design experimentations for proposing solutions, which leverage vast resources of contemporary infrastructure dredging systems. Through design explorations and scenario testing, a new dredging paradigm was proposed for a selected site at the Gippsland Lakes, located on the South East coast of Victoria, Australia.
