The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers High Shear Stress flume (SEDflume) is designed for estimating erosion rates of fine-grained and mixed fine/coarse grained sediments and the variation of the erosion rate with depth below the sediment-water interface. This flume is based on a system originally designed by researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara. The erosion data are used to predict stability for contaminated sediments, capping material, native sediment or dredged material
