Interference of Scouring action between Pier and Abutment: Primary Approach


Presented here are the results of a limited experimental program dealing withthe problem describing the scour , which is formed around bridge pier neighboringabutment . To achieve this the results shown , generally, that the scour depends ona distance interaction between pier and abutment . A modification factor deals withthis distance presented as a multiplicative factor used with an empirical predictiveformula of scour depth around bridge pier .
