Hydrodynamic Aspects in the Rotating Clyinder Erosivity Test
A comparison of different experimental installations used to study clay erosivity is presented. Flow in a rotating cylinder used in geotechnical laboratories is studied in detail. Analysis of the shear stress is presented, and conclusions are drawn as to the limitations of the quantitative evaluations of the critical shear stress in the rotating cylinder test.
