Report presents bridge scour findings
The USA's Federal Highway Adminstration (FHWA) has published a report which it says describes the most comprehensive set of real-time field trial measurements of bridge scour ever assembled. US Geological Survey researchers spent more than six years collecting data. FHWA recommends the report for use by bridge and hydraulic engineers involved in bridge scour evaluation and by researchers involved in developing improved evaluation procedures. Details are available from the FHWA website (opens in new window).
