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.
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.
