Engineering and Technology Journal, 2008, Volume 26, Issue 5, Pages 565-569

Presented here are the results of a limited experimental program dealing with
the problem describing the scour , which is formed around bridge pier neighboring
abutment . To achieve this the results shown , generally, that the scour depends on
a distance interaction between pier and abutment . A modification factor deals with
this distance presented as a multiplicative factor used with an empirical predictive
formula of scour depth around bridge pier .
