Summary "Prepared by one of the world's foremost experts in scour, this text provides the information engineers need to make and justify decisions to protect infrastructure against the effects of scour. Scour Technology steers away from the empiricism that has prevented engineers from developing the necessary understanding to make justifiable and defensible design decisions. George W. Annandale's unique approach to analyzing scour from a cause-and-effect point of view has stimulated research at leading institutions. These practical methods allow analysis of scour in any kind of earth or engineered earth material, including materials such as vegetated soils, rock, and concrete. Dr
Annandale's methods are used internationally by practicing engineers to analyze and solve scour problems at bridges subject to flowing water, at dams subject to overtopping, in spillway chutes and energy dissipaters, and in plunge pools and water-bearing tunnels, and to develop engineering specifications for vegetated erosion protection of soils subject to the scour effects of flowing water."--BOOK JACKET
