online_scour_hec18:  Calculation of bridge scour using the HEC-18 formula   


Formula:

Fr1 = v1/(g y1)1/2

ys /y1 = 2 K1 K2 K3 (a / y1)0.65 Fr10.43

[ SI Units (metric):  ys, y1, a, and L in m ]
[ U.S. Customary Units:  ys, y1, a, and L in ft ]
[ Fr = Froude number; g = gravitational acceleration ]
