This report presents a methodology for estimating the time rate of scour and the design scour depth for a bridge founded on rock. The report also includes design and construction guidelines for application of the methodology.
Reference: NCHRP Report 717, TRB
In this publication is discussed the application of blasting technology to the creation of excavations in rock and the influence of the excavation techniques upon the stability of the remaining rock.
