TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Web-Only Document 249: Combining Individual Scour Components to Determine Total Scour explores the relationships among individual scour components observed in the same flow event at a bridge. The report provides insight into ways to combine scour components to produce realistic estimates of total scour depth for safe and economical design of bridge foundations. The scour components of interest are lateral contraction scour, abutment scour, vertical contraction or pressure scour, and local pier scour.
