Regazzoni, Pierre-Louis. 2007. "Report on the Work Concerning the Comparison of the Jet-Test and Hole-Erosion Test". Bureau of Reclamation, Report Number PAP-981.

Abstract: The purpose of this report is to present a comparison between the Hole Erosion Test (HET) and the Jet Erosion Test (JET). The difficulties encountered in conducting these two tests were both experimental and theoretical. From an experimental and practical point of view, it was difficult to manage the soil quality to obtain clearly the same soil behavior from test to test. From the theoretical point of view, the analysis used for the HET has to be improved to take advantage of all the information available from the test results. This report presents a comparison based on tests conducted on four soils at the Denver – USBR Laboratory. The conclusions of the study focus on: the difference of scale between erosion with the JET and the HET; the same relative classification of erodibility obtained with the 2 devices.
