Results of the Los Angeles test on sediments of the river Fiumorbo (Corsica) and some rocks of its basin. Significance of this test and definition of a new coefficient of erosion


, : Results of the Los Angeles test on sediments of the river Fiumorbo (Corsica) and some rocks of its basin. Significance of this test and definition of a new coefficient of erosion. Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Seances de l' Academie des Sciences, D 281(17): 1211-1214

The Los Angeles test, which provides a measure of resistance to erosion, was applied to rocks and alluvia of the Fiumorbo, and to prepared mixtures of these materials. The value of the Los Angeles coefficient is strongly influenced by the initial morphoscopy of the materials.
