Abstract
The earthwork operations for reclamation add challenges and complications to common earthworks schedule and aspects such as placement locations and hauling routes…etc. The reclamation earthworks require that the soil layers structure before disturbing the land must remain the same after placement, which means different equipment optimization due to soil profile specifications which require specific pieces of equipments, hauling routes arrangements depending on locations of dirt material from a specific required type, and stockpiling spots availability. This thesis presents a special simulation tool to model earthwork operations for reclamation using Simphony.NET. The outcome of this simulation tool is to incorporate the entire equipment fleet along with the flexibility to manipulate and control each piece of equipment, soil profile specifications, excavation and placement locations, and modeling different hauling routes. This thesis also includes an actual case study to examine the applicability and model validation using general purpose template of Simphony.NET.
