Initial grain motion under oscillatory flow: a comparison of some threshold criteria
Rigler, J.K. and Collins, M.B. (1984) Initial grain motion under oscillatory flow: a comparison of some threshold criteria. Geo-Marine Letters, 3, (1), 43-48. (doi:10.1007/BF02463441).

Experimental data are described on the threshold of transport of quartz, ilmenite, and cassiterite grains under oscillatory flow in a flume and the results are compared to those of other investigators. The results show that for a given particle size, critical shear stress (τcrit) increases with increasing wave period and that τcrit increases with both grain size and grain density. These data are compared with prediction equations.
