Abstract
    The equations are set up to calculate the initial rigidity, Ty, of mud deposits as a function of specific mass and composition. This rigidity seems to be the most general characteristic of mud to describe its physical behaviour, under wave and current action. The threshold criterion for sand bottoms is described as measured by flume experiments (wave and currents). All these fundamental results are used to solve problems like sedimentation, erosion and navigation.
