Below is the uncorrected machine-read text. overall goal of developing a comprehensive method for estimating abutment scour in compound channels. The method is intended to be readily used by civil engineers, while being cognizant of the diverse combinations of abutment alignment and design, pier proximity, compound-channel.

p Enhanced Abutment Scour Studies for Compound Channels (FHWA August ) This report describes a laboratory study of abutment scour for compound channels where the experiments simulated floodplains with defined channel and over bank flow areas at different elevations.

Local scour at abutments: A review. abutment scour process in compound channels. Though a large number of studies have been carried out on local scour at dif ferent abutments.

As literature showed previous studies were mainly on scour depth around thin vertical abutments in rectangular channels. The measurements of the scour depth, length, width, surface area and volume of the scour hole at different time intervals until its. Results for a wing-wall abutment flume model with 45 deg wings without scAUR™ and VorGAUR™ products is shown in Figure 3.

Local scour occurred around the contraction leading edge of the model and the maximum local scour depth is located very close to the contraction edge. The scour depth contours are normalized by the model length L.

Failure of bridges due to local scour has motivated many investigators to explore the causes of scouring and to predict the maximum scour depth at abutments.

In this paper, a detailed review of the up-to-date work on scour at abutments is presented including all possible aspects, such as flow field, scouring process, parameters affecting scour depth, time-variation of scour and scour depth Cited by: the prediction of scour around bridge piers and abutments have evolved from field experience alone.

The flow of individual streams exhibits a manifold variation, and great disparity exists among different rivers. The alignment, cross section, discharge, and slope of a stream must all be.

The abutment vulnerability assessment flow chart is intended to evaluate the relative vulnerability of a bridge to scour considering factors that affect abutment scour.

A separate evaluation is provided for each abutment because the scour producing parameters may vary at each one, although it is expected that the abutment foundation.

The USGS abutment-scour field data primarily represents scour associated with clear-water scour conditions. Therefore, findings in this investigation will be limited to this type of scour.

Figure 1. USGS reports that document field investigations of abutment scour from South Carolina, the National Bridge Scour Database, Maine, and Alabama. Actually, for an abutment on a compound channel, deepest scour should be checked at two locations: in the main channel if the abutment is close to the main channel; and, on the floodplain if the abutment distant from the main channel.

BARKDOLL) Scour at bridge abutments can cause damage or failure of bridges and result in excessive repairs, loss of accessibility, or even death.

To mitigate abutment scour, both clear-water and live-bed laboratory experiments in a compound channel were performed.A bridge site with noticeable abutment scour was selected after consultation with Mr.

Stephen Benedict of USGS who has intimate knowledge of the state of scour at many South Carolina bridge sites. From a list of over bridge sites surveyed by USGS for abutment and pier scour, three bridges were selected for preliminary considerations.
