Approximately 500,000 bridges in the National Bridge Inventory (NBI) are built over streams. A large proportion of these bridges span alluvial streams that are continually adjusting their beds and banks. Many, especially those on more active streams, will experience problems with aggradation, degradation, bank erosion, and lateral channel shift during their useful life. The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for identifying stream instability problems at highway stream crossings. Techniques for stream channel classification and reconnaissance, as well as rapid assessment methods for channel instability are summarized. Qualitative and quantitative geomorphic and engineering techniques useful in stream channel stability analysis are presented. This publication is an update of the third edition published in 2001.

This document is the fifth edition of HEC-18. It presents the state of knowledge and practice for the design, evaluation and inspection of bridges for scour. There are two companion documents, HEC-20 entitled "Stream Stability at Highway Structures," and HEC-23 entitled "Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures." These three documents contain updated material from previous editions and continued research by NCHRP, FHWA, State DOTs, and universities. This fifth edition of HEC-18 also contains revisions obtained from further scour-related developments and the use of the 2001 edition by the highway community. The major changes in the fifth edition of HEC-18 are: expanded discussion on the policy and regulatory basis for the FHWA Scour Program, including risk-based approaches for evaluations, developing Plans of Action (POAs) for scour critical bridges, and expanded discussion on countermeasure design...

The most common cause of bridge failures is from floods scouring bed material from around bridge foundations. Scour is the engineering term for the erosion caused by water of the soil surrounding a bridge foundation (piers and abutments). The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines for the following: 1. Designing new and replacement bridges to resist scour, 2. Evaluating existing bridges for vulnerability to scour, 3. Inspecting bridges for scour, 4. Improving the state-of-practice of estimating scour at bridges. This document is the fifth edition of HEC-18. It presents the state of knowledge and practice for the design, evaluation and inspection of bridges for scour. There are two companion documents, HEC-20 entitled "Stream Stability at Highway Structures," and HEC-23 entitled "Bridge Scour and Stream Instability Countermeasures." These three documents contain updated material from previous editions and continued research by NCHRP, FHWA, State DOTs, and universities. This fifth edition of HEC-18 also contains revisions obtained from further scour-related developments and the use of the 2001 edition by the highway community. The major changes in the fifth edition of HEC-18 are: expanded discussion on the policy and regulatory basis for the FHWA Scour Program, including risk-based approaches for evaluations, developing Plans of Action (POAs) for scour critical bridges, and expanded discussion on countermeasure design philosophy (new vs. existing bridges). This fifth edition includes: a new section on contraction scour in cohesive materials, an updated abutment scour section, alternative abutment design approaches, alternative procedures for estimating pier scour, and new guidance on pier scour with debris loading. There is a new chapter on soils, rock and geotechnical considerations related to scour. Additional changes include: a new approach for pier scour in coarse material, new sections on pier scour in cohesive materials and pier scour in erodible rock, revised guidance for vertical contraction scour (pressure flow) conditions, guidance for predicting scour at bottomless culverts, deletion of the "General Scour" term, and revised discussion on scour at tidal bridges to reflect material now covered in HEC-25 (2nd Edition).

FHWA Publication No. FHWA-NHI-08-0106. February 2009. Explains the behavior of rivers in order to recognize changing conditions associated with unstable streams or scour at bridge foundations that may threaten the stability of the bridge. Provides tips and guidance on what to look for with regard to both stream instability, including lateral instability, degradation, and aggradation, and scour at bridges, including contraction scour, pier scour, and abutment scour. Also covered are plans of action and countermeasures, such as monitoring, flood watches, bridge closures, and river training countermeasures.

Stream Channel Migration Effects on Bridge Approaches and Conveyance

The main objective of this project is to investigate channel protection techniques, especially those with low-cost and low-maintenance, for control of channel migration near bridge approaches. Such low cost techniques are more applicable to small streams than to large rivers. A literature review was conducted. Channel migration is mitigated either through protection of the bank and/or bed erosion and considerable deposition, or through instream structures to redirect the flow, or both. Useful control techniques include: instream structures such as bendway weirs, riprap and masonry revetment, bioengineering techniques such as willow posts, and geosynthetic membranes. Advantages and disadvantages of these techniques are summarized. Based on the information obtained from a survey of Illinois bridge sites and under the guidance of the Technical Review Panel, four sites were selected for further study of applicability of the protection techniques. For every site it has been identified that the meander pattern of the stream is a major factor for the scour and flow action endangering bridge safety. Therefore, the general goals of the suggested alternative actions are to stabilize and/or improve the stream meander alignment and to control and protect against local bank scour. The alternatives for a site range from positive "active" control structures to "passive" protection and sediment deposition enhancement. Generally, the more "active" alternatives are more costly but have less failure risk when compared to the more "passive" alternatives.

This Circular contains twenty-seven research problem statements developed by the TRB Committee on Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Water Quality (A2A03). Much of the effort toward the development of these statements was accomplished at the Committee's summer meeting, July 22 and 23, 1996, in Baltimore, Maryland. This Circular updates and replaces TRB Circular 405, which was the previous compilation of Research Problem Statements by the Committee.
