Abstract

The ultimate objective of this research is the prediction of scour hole geometries associated with single bridge piers of various shapes and offshore platforms of complicated geometries. Accurate calculations of velocity fields and bed shear stresses were obtained using the FLUENT package. Calculated bed shear stresses can be used in appropriate sediment continuity equations for the prediction of scour hole geometries.
