Part of: Sediment Transport Modeling

Abstract: The prediction of the time development of local scour is commonly solved by means of model tests. A brief description of the time-scale and the relation between the time and the scour depth established through previous systematic model tests is given. Determination of the most relevant scour parameters has been made and are presented in design curves.
