Mobile Bridge Scour Monitoring Using Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

Infrastructure monitoring, inspection, and management is one the nation’s top priorities in ensuring the aging infrastructure is in a state of good repair. Maintaining expected performance levels for various infrastructure elements has become increasingly challenging in recent years, due to a number of factors, two of which include limited availability of funding, and increased occurrence and severity of extreme weather events. In particular, over 21,000 bridges over water have been deemed scour critical in the United States, with the numbers expected to grow. Faced with limited funding, states need to prioritize bridge scour monitoring, inspection, and mitigation programs, particularly in preparation for, and in wake of extreme events.
