shieldsmodbonlay(rhom,diam) computes the modified Shields criterion for the initiation of motion of a cohesionless sediment. The function also plots the modified Shields diagram. As inputs, the mass density of the sediment (kg/m3) and sediment grain diameter (m) are required.
The outputs are: 1) critical shear velocity (m/s), maximum bottom shear stress (Pa) and sediment fluid parameter (dimensionless).
