Abstract. Typically the erosion rate of cohesive soils is modeled using the excess shear stress equation, which includes two soil parameters: the erodibility coefficient (k d ) and the critical shear stress (I„ c ). A jet erosion test (JET) is a standardized method available for deriving the erodibility of cohesive soils. The JET data are typically analyzed using a Blaisdell solution approach. A second solution approach based on direct parameter optimization to the measured scour depth data has…
