dc.description.abstractUpon each deployment of The Fluidizer, the team found ways to improve the efficiency of deployment, function, and removal of the system. at that depth. Improvements included: •Removal of the main frame previously located at the pipe and hose connection elbow. •Adding appropriate weights to stabilize and aid in the self burial of the device. After 3 successful deployments, it was confirmed that fluidization is a viable method of burial and sand management. The Fluidizer was able to bury itself to a depth of 2 ft. At this depth, it was also able to fluidize and remove the sand , leaving a trench of absent material behind.en_US
