Research Project: CALIBRATION OF MINI-JET AND MEASUREMENT OF IMPACT OF SEEPAGE PROCESSES ON ERODIBILITY

Location: Hydraulic Engineering Research

Project Number: 6217-13000-009-34
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Nov 22, 2010
End Date: Jun 01, 2013

Objective:
The objectives of this cooperative research project are to calibrate the Mini-JET and use the Mini-JET to investigate the impact of seepage forces on soil erodibility.

Approach:
Work together in 1) calibrating the Mini-JET by comparing test results to larger scale JET apparatus test results and to flume test results and 2) conducting tests using the Mini-JET to measure changes in material erodibility under various levels of seepage forces in bench scale sample tests as well as large-scale flume tests conducted at the OSU and HERU facilities.
