Evaluation of Bridge Scour Research: Pier Scour Processes and Predictions
University of Iowa
The project final report is available as NCHRP Web-Only Document 175.
The objectives of this project were to (1) critically evaluate research completed since 1990 in pier scour processes and prediction in comparison with current practice and (2) develop recommendations for adoption of specific research results by AASHTO and use by the engineering community in general.
This project addressed scour in cohesive soils, cohesionless soils, and rock.
