Sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Division of ASCE.

This collection contains 75 papers and 321 abstracts presented at conferences sponsored by the Water Resources Engineering (Hydraulics) Division of ASCE from 1991 through 1998. The collection contains many new and expanded versions of the original papers and is designed to assist the practitioner with the concepts in evaluating stream instability and scour at bridges.

Topics include: history of bridge scour research; bridge scour determination; stream stability and geomorphology; construction scour; instrumentation for measuring and monitoring; field measurement; computer and physical modeling of bridge scour; scour at culverts; and economic and risk analysis.

One important paper contains 384 field measurements of local scour at piers made by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Subject Headings: Scour | Water resources | Hydraulic engineering | Infrastructure construction | River bank stabilization | Bridge tests | Bridge design
