HYDROLOGIC EVALUATIONS IN BRIDGE PIER SCOUR DESIGN

HYDROLOGIC EVALUATIONS IMPORTANT FOR THE DESIGN OF BRIDGE PIERS TO PROTECT THEM AGAINST STREAM BED SCOUR INCLUDE PREDICTION OF THE LOCAL STAGE VERSUS DISCHARGE RELATION; SELECTION OF SUITABLE STREAM BED REFERENCE ELEVATIONS; EVALUATION OF THE ASSESSMENT OF HYDROGRAPH INFLUENCES ON CHANNEL STABILITY WITH RESPECT TO CHANNEL ALINEMENT, STREAM BED CONFIGURATION, AND STREAM BED DEGRADATION; AND EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTS OF DAMS, DREDGING, AND SAND-AND-GRAVEL OPERATIONS UPON SEDIMENT TRANSPORT NEAR BRIDGE PIERS. METHODS AND DIFFICULTIES IN MAKING THESE AND OTHER HYDROLOGIC EVALUATIONS ARE EXAMINED. THE TECHNIQUES CONSIDERED RELY MAINLY UPON THE DEVELOPMENT AND ANALYSIS OF STREAM GAGING RECORDS AND THE ANALYSIS OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHS. /HRB/
