Monopiles are important structures in offshore wind engineering, primarily serving as foundations for wind turbines. When installed on a sandy seabed, local scour around monopiles can reduce their capacity, and is a significant hazard to be addressed in the design process. This paper provides a review of research related to local scour around monopiles, focusing on the following aspects: (1) identifying flow structures related to local scour, (2) synthesizing existing data on equilibrium scour depth and scour time-scale, (3) summarizing technology for observing local scour through laboratory experiments, numerical simulations and field observations, and (4) outlining the existing challenges and research opportunities.
