Evaluation of Bridge-Scour Research

The objectives of this research are to: (a) critically evaluate bridge-scour research results completed since 1990, (b) make recommendations for adoption of specific research results into AASHTO policies and procedures, (c) recommend research needed to fill gaps where research results are not yet conclusive enough for adoption by AASHTO and wide-scale use by practitioners, and (d) draft the bridge-scour sections of the AASHTO manuals, "Policy for Design of Highway Drainage Facilities" and "Recommended Procedures for Design of Highway Drainage Facilities."
