AbstractThe erosion rate of cohesive soils is typically computed using an excess shear stress model based on the applied fluvial shear stress. However, no mechanistic approaches are available for incorporating additional forces, such as groundwater seepage into the excess shear stress model parameters. Seepage forces are known to be significant contributors to streambank erosion and failure. The objective of this research was to incorporate seepage forces into a mechanistic fundamental… 
Nonlinear Detachment Model for Soil Erodibility: Application and Incorporation into a Streambank Erosion and Stability Model
Cohesive sediment transport is typically modeled for channels, levees, spillways, earth dams, and internal erosion using a linear excess shear stress approach. However, mechanistic nonlinear
Comparison of Linear and Nonlinear Models for Cohesive Sediment Detachment: Rill Erosion, Hole Erosion Test, and Streambank Erosion Studies
AbstractCohesive sediment detachment is typically modeled for channels, levees, spillways, earthen dams, and internal erosion by using a linear excess shear stress approach. However, mechanistic
A Scour Depth Approach for Deriving Erodibility Parameters from Jet Erosion Tests
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
Temporal and Thermal Effects on Fluvial Erosion of Cohesive Streambank Soils
Despite extensive research on bridge scour and channel erosion, predicting the occurrence and rate of cohesive soil erosion remains problematic. The lack of standard procedures for sample preparation
A Practical Approach to the Erodibility of Cohesive Soils
A set of solutions to the cohesive soil erosion problem were developed through this study. A first device, the Erosionometer, was developed to perform a quick and reliable test to determine the

This study provides fundamental examination of mass fluvial erosion along a stream bank by identifying event timing, quantifying retreat lengths, and providing ranges of incipient shear stress for
Influence of Lead Pollution on Cohesive Soil Erodibility using Jet Erosion Tests
Recent researches were investigated the high concentrations of Lead in Baghdad soils due to the emissions from Leaded fuel of cars, generators, and the industrials. These high concentrations in
Sediment detachment and transport processes associated with internal erosion of soil pipes
Subsurface flow can be an important process in gully erosion through its impact on decreasing soil cohesion and erosion resistance as soil water content or pressure increases and more directly by the
Erosion rate of sand and mud mixtures
Abstract Erosion of mixed cohesive and noncohesive sediments is studied using the erosion test instrument SEDFlume. The sediment mixtures are composed of well-sorted quartz sand (0.25–0.5 mm) and one
Site‐scale variability of streambank fluvial erodibility parameters as measured with a jet erosion test
The erosion rate of cohesive streambanks is typically modelled using the excess shear stress equation, dependent on two erodibility parameters: critical shear stress and erodibility coefficient. The

Abstract. The erosion rate of cohesive soils is commonly quantified using the excess shear stress model, which is dependent on two major soil parameters: the critical shear stress (I„ c ) and the
Erosion of Noncohesive Sediment by Ground Water Seepage : Lysimeter Experiments and Stability Modeling
Seepage may be a significant mechanism of streambank erosion and failure in numerous geographical locations. Previous research investigated erosion by lateral subsurface flow and developed a sediment
Soil properties controlling seepage erosion contributions to streambank failure
The majority of sediment leaving catchments may be from streambank failure. Seepage erosion of unconsolidated sand above a restrictive layer is an important erosion process in incised streams that
