    Instability exposed foundation due to scour around bridge pier caused displacement should be noted that erosion and destruction often occurs subsidence of river-bed soil in bearing layer changed place under water pressure bound to tilt the piers of the bridge, which can then produce another phase of secondary displacement, that is, if in the longer term forces such as earthquakes or floods. This process is frequently referred to as bridge scour. Over time, scour can lead to bridge failure. To manage the risk from bridge scour, countermeasures are now used on bridge foundations. USGS scientists will be evaluating these bridge scour countermeasures at . Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

CALCULATION OF BRIDGE PIER SCOUR USING THE ERODIBILITY INDEX METHOD. This report explains the use of the Erodibility Index Method (also known as Annandale's Method) to calculate bridge pier scour. The method can be used to predict scour in any earth material, including rock and cohesive and noncohesive soils.

Scour refers to the removal of streambed material beneath a bridge, generally by hydraulic stresses exerted on the streambed and bridge foundation during floods (fig. Scour has the potential to damage bridges by undermining or destabilizing the bridge foundation and is the leading cause ofAuthor: Robin A.

Beebee, Karenth L. Dworsky, Schyler J. Knopp. Streambed scour potential was evaluated at 18 river- and stream-spanning bridges in Alaska that have unknown foundation details or a lack of existing scour analysis.

All sites were evaluated for stream stability and long-term scour potential. Contraction scour and abutment scour were calculated for 17 bridges, and pier scour was calculated for 7 bridges that had piers. Streambed scour potential was evaluated at 52 river- and stream-spanning bridges in Alaska that lack a quantitative scour analysis or have unknown foundation details.

All sites were evaluated for stream stability and long-term scour potential. Contraction scour and abutment scour were calculated for 52 bridges, and pier scour was calculated for 11 bridges that had inkpapery.icu: Robin A. Beebee, Karenth L. Dworsky, Schyler J.

Guidance for Bridge Scour Studies The broad objective of geomorphic and scour assessment studies is to assess the channel stability and scour potential of a stream site at or near a bridge from observable characteristics of the site.

State highway departments use the assessments to help screen sites that do not need further evaluation and. inspection of bridges for scour. There are two companion documents, HEC entitled "Stream Stability at Highway Structures," and HEC entitled "Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures." These three documents contain updated material from previous editions and continued research by NCHRP, FHWA, State DOTs, and universities.

Stability) for an initial evaluation of scour and stream stability was assessed. Three alternative scour indices are used to compare with the evaluation results of CAESAR.

These scour indices include the Observed Streambed Scour index, the INDOT Potential Streambed Scour Index, and the Simon Potential Streambed Scour Index. Ten bridges in. Local Scour at Bridge Sites.

Geological Survey. Procedures for Scour Assessments at Bridges in Pennsylvania by Peter J. Cinotto and Kirk E. White Open-File Report prepared in cooperation with the PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Lemoyne, Pennsylvania Abstract Streambed scour at bridges is the leading cause of bridge failure in the United States.

The costs associated with restoring damaged structures are substantial, but the indirect costs associated with the disruption of traffic are often even greater, especially in Alaska, where alternate land routes between many cities do not exist.

This book covers the description of, analysis of, and design for scour at bridge foundations. The central focus is the combination of old and new design methods into a comprehensive methodology for bridge-scour design.
