Local Scour and its Reduction by using Splitter Plate

Priyanka R. Muke, Tushar D. Bhosale

Present study comprises of local scour effect on alluvial bed and its reduction technique using splitter plate. Scour is a natural phenomenon caused due to high velocity of water jet such action results in collapse of the bridge structure and loss of life and property. Protection against scour is too expensive but an attempt should be made to minimize the failure of structures due to local scour. In the present study experiment is carried out using two circular piers having diameter 50mm and 100mm. Sediments were having size d40 and steel splitter plate is used to study the reduction in scour depth.This phenomenon is also applicable for bridge piers resting on rocky foundation.
