TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 587: Countermeasures to Protect Bridge Abutments from Scour examines selection criteria and guidelines for the design and construction of countermeasures to protect bridge abutments and approach embankments from scour damage. The report explores two common forms of bridge abutments--wing-wall (vertical face with angled walls into the bank) and spill-through (angled face).
