Product Description:

A complete guide to preventing and rehabilitating dangerous bridge scour—the leading cause of bridge and highway structure failure in the U.S.

Flood Scour for Bridges and Highways provides proven design and maintenance measures and flood management techniques to prevent bridge scour—the erosion or removal of streambed or bank material from bridge foundations due to flowing water. This authoritative guide presents a proactive strategy for the design and construction of bridges to prevent scour, as well as a reactive plan for post-flood disaster management. Topics include causes of scour, identifying "scour critical" structures, rehabilitation of existing scour conditions, design of scour countermeasures, and reactive flood management strategies.

  • Strategies for greatly reducing maintenances costs and damaged property
  • Covers floods and damage caused by both rainfall and tidal forces
  • Information on preventive measure for new bridges, as well as rehabilitation of existing structures
  • Discusses disaster management and relief strategies
