Abstract:

This paper presents a method for estimating toe scour potential at a reveted slope as characterized by bottom velocity. Wave, water level, and structure parameters are considered. Laboratory tests were conducted on a fixed nonerodible bottom, and wave and bottom velocity time series were measured near the toe of the revetment. Previous scour studies are reviewed, the laboratory experiment is described, and results are presented to correlate representative bottom velocity with relative depth, wave steepness, and reflection.
