Revised Clear-Water and Live-Bed Contraction Scour Analysis

View Cover

Overview

Contributors

Description

Bridge waterways commonly narrow or constrict natural channels, forcing water to flow through a contracted area, thereby increasing the magnitudes of velocity and turbulent kinetic energy of flow passing through the waterway. If these increases cause erosion of the waterway boundaries, the contracted section may scour.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 971: Revised Clear-Water and Live-Bed Contraction Scour Analysis develops live-bed and clear-water contraction scour equations suitable for use in risk-based bridge design encompassing a wide range of hydraulic conditions, including varying contraction ratios.

Supplemental to the report is NCHRP Web-Only Document 294: Revised Clear-Water and Live-Bed Contraction Scour Analysis Training Manual and a Presentation.
