About the event

Scour of foundations by the action of water is a major cause of bridge collapse worldwide and it is important to manage the risks in an effective and consistent manner.  A key part of that process is the inspection of structures to identify those that are most at risk and require further action.  In this presentation, Brian Devlin will focus on the different types of scour, what constitutes a scour-critical bridge, the traditional methods for conducting scour inspections and the modern imaging tools used to assist in the evaluation of bridges for scour.
