SISS PROJECT - NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE SCOUR EVOLUTION AROUND THREE DIMENSIONAL SUBMERGED BODIES

A numerical procedure has been developed for the evaluation of scouring phenomena on the sea bed due to the presence of structures or unevenness. The methodology has been validated by comparison with laboratory experiments carried out under a wide range of environmental conditions and structures geometry. The results confirm the reliability of the numerical procedure as a useful tool in predicting the relevance of the bed erosion phenomena that occur when a disturbance of the flow field is introduced by a structure in an otherwise stable condition.
