THE EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF LOCAL SCOUR AROUND MUL ---- NAPES BRIDGE PIER

An experimental investigation of local scour around mul --- napes bridge pier under a clear water regime is presented in this paper considering the main characeristic feature of flow along the circumference of the pier is relatively large horseshoe vortex flow. And the process of scour is also discussed. Finally a equation for predicting the depth and area of local scour hole is presented, which can be used to evaluate the potential scour depth around this type pier.
