Abstract

The sustainable management of coastal defence assets requires information regarding the ground levels at the toe of the structure as this has a direct effect on the structural performance. The failure of structures due to toe scour is a recognised problem and research has been completed in recent years to increase understanding of the process and its prediction. This work is being translated to guidance which will inform asset management and design of new or remedial works.
