Historical Development of Bridge Scour Evaluations
Scour of bridge foundations (piers and abutments) is the largest single cause of bridge failures in the United States. Conversely, uncertainties of the scour depth at bridge piers and...

Dam Foundation Erosion Study: The Design of a Sidewall Orifice for Simulation of a Free Trajectory Overtopping Jet
This paper describes the design of a sidewall discharging orifice for simulation of a free trajectory overtopping jet. A sidewall orifice discharges through the sidewall of a pipe. The...

Arizona Local Government Bridge Scour Evaluation Study
The Federal Highway Administration has mandated that the scour susceptibility of existing bridges over waterways and open to the travelling public be evaluated. With large numbers of highway...

The Scour at Bridges Management Program in Rhode Island
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has developed and implemented a comprehensive two-phase scour susceptibility program for screening and assessment of scour at bridges....

Applicability of Scour Equations in Tidal Areas
Bridge scour and waterway instability in the coastal region where waterways are subjected to tidal flow can be subjected to mass density stratification, water salinity, sedimentation (littoral...

Biological Serendipity from an Ocean Outfall Maintenance Inspection
A large deep-water ocean outfall discharging ˜880 x 106 liters day (230 million gallons day of treated wastewater effluent was inspected with a one-man...

Scour around Exposed Pile Foundations
Laboratory experiments were conducted to measure local scour around exposed pile groups for a variety of conditions including different spacings, different skew angles, different patterns...

Maryland SHA's Procedure for Assessing Existing Bridges for Scour Vulnerability and for Rating Unknown Foundations
The Maryland State Highway Administration developed a recommended screening procedure for rating existing bridges for Item 113, Scour Critical Bridges, in the National Bridge Inventory...

Dam Foundation Erosion Study: Pit 4 Scale Model Simulation
This paper describes the results of a sub task of the Dam Foundation Erosion Study, a cooperative research study by Reclamation, PG&E, Colorado State University, and Western Area...
