ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION OF SCOUR AT RAILWAY BRIDGES IN NEW ZEALAND

This paper summarizes an investigation into past scour failures at a number of railroad bridges and describes some of the characteristics associated with these events. A new method of predicting the extent of scour, evolved from data collected in the investigation, is suggested for use in bridge design and analysis. The parameters discussed were evaluated for each of the investigated scour cases, and values for some of the more important basic factors are given in table.
