Explores practical selection criteria for bridge-pier scour countermeasures; guidelines and specifications for the design and construction of those countermeasures; and guidelines for their inspection, maintenance, and performance evaluation. Produced along with the report is an interactive version of the countermeasure selection methodology, which defines the proper conditions for the use of each specific countermeasure, and a reference document that contains detailed laboratory testing results and translations of three German qCode of Practiceq documents.Chiew, Y.M., aquot;Mechanics of Riprap Failure at Bridge Piers, aquot; ASCE Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, Vol. ...
