The mechanisms and behaviour of the scour process is a challenging subject, and one which is expertly dealt with in this informative, illustrated volume. Specifically, this book addresses issues relating to computing and controlling the scour process near hydraulic structures, and pays special attention to the time-dependent character of the scour processes and the predictability of scour relations. Providing information on the latest developments in scouring, this text is intended for practising hydraulic engineers.... the two branches (m) yme = equilibrium scour depth (m) 9 = angle between the two upstream branches For the Jamuna river in Bangladesh (fine sand), the constant c0 is 1.29 (Klaassen aamp; Vermeer 1988). Based on field data for gravel rivers, anbsp;...
