Abstract: A comparative assessment of various bridge pier scour equations has been reported on the basis of analyzing a set of published prototype data from Indian rivers and other countries covering a wide range of variables. Specific attention has been given towards effect of sediment size to determine suitability of scour equations. Finally, recommendations have been made for design purposes.
