SCOUR DEPTH CALCULATIONS FOR OPEN FOUNDATIONS

:
Example Design Data Two boreholes are carried out at this bridge location, BH-1 near pier and BH-2 near abutment.Top layers of BH-1 and BH-2 consist of boulder mixed with gravel and pebble in depth of 0.6m and 1.10m respectively followed by weathered,fine to medium grained
