EVALUATING SCOUR AT CULVERT OUTLETS

An experimental study of scour at culvert outlets in two uniform noncohesive soil materials was conducted. Empirical relationships for describing the scourhole length, width, depth, and volume of material removed were developed. The results of this study, in conjunction with similar studies that use different uniform materials, will be helpful in evaluating scour at culvert outlets and assessing methods of scour protection or energy dissipation.
