FLOOD PROTECTION AT BRIDGE CROSSINGS

TECHNIQUES FOR THE DESIGN OF STABLE ROCK-RIPRAP PROTECTION IN THE VICINITY OF BRIDGE CROSSINGS ARE COMPUTED FROM METHODS DERIVED IN OTHER SOURCES, AND THE PROPERTIES ARE RELATED TO PARTICLE SIZES FOR RIPRAP PROTECTION OF ABUTMENTS AND PIERS. DESIGN STEPS FOR PROTOTYPE BRIDGE CROSSINGS ARE ENUMERATED SO THAT THE HYDRAULIC ENGINEER MAY USE THIS REPORT AS A DESIGN MANUAL. AN EXAMPLE OF THE DESIGN PROTECTION FOR A PROTOTYPE BRIDGE CROSSING IS INCLUDED TO CLARIFY THE SUGGESTED DESIGN PROCEDURES. RIPRAP-PROTECTED SPILL-THROUGH ABUTMENTS WERE CONSTRUCTED IN THE HYDRAULIC FACILITIES AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY IN ORDER TO TEST THE VALIDITY OF THE SUGGESTED DESIGN PROCEDURES. /AUTHOR/
