Critical Shear Stress Analysis of Clay Sediment Sample (Glacial Till)

Marcelo Garcia;Jose Mier
A study was conducted to determine the value of the shear stress at the bottom of the St. Clair River, and whether it is capable of generating significant erosion of the glacial till that is exposed in some areas of the river bed. Through a series of laboratory experiments, a sediment sample extracted from the river was tested to determine the critical value for the bed shear stress. This value was then used in sediment transport models for studying the conveyance of the river.
