PROTECTION OF BRIDGE ABUTMENTS FROM SCOUR

The failure of bridges due to excessive abutment scour causes high maintenance cost or even the bridge collapse resulting in interruption of traffic as well as casualties to life. Hence ability to protect bridge abutment from scour is critical to bridge safety. Review showed that there are two approaches to scour mitigation viz. bank hardening and flow-altering. Selection of a countermeasure involves life cycle cost assessment for the particular site along with social and environmental issues. However, their application for mobile bed and in compound channels is still to be established.
