@article{Daly2013ASD, title={A Scour Depth Approach for Deriving Erodibility Parameters from Jet Erosion Tests}, author={Erin R. Daly and Garey A. Fox and Ronald B. Miller and Abdul-Sahib T. Al-Madhhachi}, journal={Transactions of the ASABE}, year={2013}, volume={56}, pages={1343-1351} }

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…
