T he prediction of the depth of scour around bridge piers and abutments is only necessary in the justification of the cost of the bridge substructure. It is obvious on the one hand that massive structures carried to bedrock will never be affected by scour, and on the other that the failure of a bridge as a result of undermining represents a large financial loss. Thus, the foundations should be designed with a cost warranted by· the consequent reliability and the probable service of the entire structure.
