Local Sediment Scour Model Tests for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Piers: Final Report
bridges, model studies, prototype, scour
None supplied. From introduction: Another methodology for obtaining the prototype scour depth from the measured model scour depth has been developed by the first author of this report. This procedure is more involved in that it attempts to take into consideration additional parameters such as the sediment properties. This method makes use of empirical scour depth prediction equations developed by the first author. Both methods (HEC-18 and the author's) are used to analyze the data in this study.
