Technical Supplement 14B Scour Calculations Purpose Scour is one of the major causes of failure for stream and river projects. It is important to adequately as-sess and predict scour for any stream or river design. Designers of treatments such as barbs, revetments, or weirs (that are placed on or adjacent to streambeds). present on river beds, the HEC equations tend to over-predict scour depth, although under-prediction also occurs as reported in published studies. The uncertainty of scour depth prediction can led to over design of bridge piers increasing construction costs, or under designed piers which may lead to bridge failure or future costly repairs.
Sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Divsion of ASCE. This collection contains 75 papers and abstracts presented at conferences sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Division of ASCE from through The collection contains many new and expanded versions of the original papers and is designed to assist the 2/5(1). At present, bridges are frequently built with geometries that consist of a column founded on a pile cap and supported by an array of piles, referred to as common complex piers or most often (as also in this paper), briefly, as complex piers. This paper addresses prediction of local scour depth at those complex piers.

Scour of the soil by flowing water around bridge supports is the number one reason for bridge collapse. Predicting the depth of the scour hole is an integral part of the bridge foundation Author: Jean-Louis Briaud.
The prediction of scour and management of vulnerable bridges can help prevent catastrophic failures, whilst ensuring cost-effective use of resources. This one day course looks at the prediction of scour at bridges over water or floodplains due to hydraulic action and the management of high risk bridges, drawing on international good practice guidelines.
Scour is one of the main causes of bridge failure and scour depth prediction is thus a very important issue. Although many studies have been carried out to develop formulas for the prediction of scour depth at abutments, the existing formulas do not yield accurate results, mainly due to the complexity of the scour phenomena around by: 4.

Cai2 Abstract: Scour is one of the main causes of bridge failures. It accounts for about 60% of bridge failures in the United States.
Scour of the soil by flowing water around bridge supports is the number one reason for bridge collapse. Predicting the depth of the scour hole is an integral part of the bridge foundation design, as it impacts the depth of the piles. Indeed, the scour depth must be ignored in the vertical and horizontal resistance of the piles.
TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Web-Only Document Evaluation of Bridge-Scour Research: Abutment and Contraction Scour Processes and Prediction examines bridge-abutment scour and the effectiveness of the leading methods used for estimating design scour depth.
Bridge pier scour is an important issue for safety evaluation of bridges. The existing scour depth prediction equations for bridge piers are mostly deterministic in nature, which do not.
In September TRB released NCHRP Research Results Digest Evaluation of Bridge Scour Research, which summarizes key finding of NCHRP Web-Only Document along with two other NCHRP projects that explored processes and predictions related to pier scour, abutment and contraction scour, and geomorphic scour.
A new method called SRICOS is proposed to predict the scour depth z versus time t around a cylindrical bridge pier of diameter D founded in clay.
The steps involved are: (1) taking samples at the bridge pier site; (2) testing them in an erosion function apparatus to obtain the scour rate ż versus the hydraulic shear stress applied τ; (3) predicting the maximum shear stress τ max. scour. As bridges continue to fail in spite of the theoretical precision, reliable forecasts of scour need to be given based on experience.
A large factor of safety helps because of the uncertainty involved in the prediction of scour depth. It is advisable to follow the local standard code of practice.

7 Steps for Total Bridge Scour • 1: Determine scour analysis variables • 2: Analyze long-term bed elevation change. The present evaluation shows that, while the individual scour influences of the many bridge waterway variables are now well understood for simple cylindrical, or common pier designs, and that recently developed scour estimation methods attempt to encompass these influences, the principal difficulty confronting reliable scour depth estimation at the moment is development of a method that comprehensively accounts for the diverse site factors complicating scour.
Local scour around bridge piers is a complicated physical process and involves highly three-dimensional flows. Thus, the scour depth, which is directly related to the safety of a bridge, cannot be given in the form of the exact relationship of dependent variables via an analytical method.
This paper proposes the use of the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system Cited by: 5. There are several prominent knowledge gaps about processes whereby scour could occur in ways and places not accounted for by existing prediction methods or programs of bridge monitoring (e.g., geomorphic change in channel alignment, inadequate estimation of peaks and periods of design flows, proximity of old or new bridges, the role of large.Local scour development below a pipeline subject to currents/waves is illustrated schematically in Fig.
