DESIGN MANUAL FOR ROADS AND BRIDGES VOL 1, SECTION 3, PART 6. THE DESIGN OF HIGHWAY BRIDGES FOR HYDRAULIC ACTION

The most common cause of highway bridge failure is due to adverse hydraulic action. It is therefore necessary that attention is pa the prevention of such failures when designing new bridges. This Advice Note is applicable to all proposed bridges over rivers, estuaries and flood plains. It also applies equally to temporary crossings except that reduced return periods may be used in the calculations. This Advice Note supplements the existing requirem on hydraulic aspects of bridge design.
