In this research, feed-forward neural network with back-propagation algorithm will be used to predict the maximum local scour
depth around single cylindrical bridge pier under clear water conditions and comparison of the results with twelve of the most common predictive formulas, listed in Table (1).
The maximum scour
depth always arises in the main channel.
4] studied scour
and flow field in a scour
hole around a T-shape spur dike in a 90 degree bend.
A model that combines genetic algorithms and simulation technology to estimate scour
depth of bridge piers by calculating natural frequency is introduced in this section.
Each group applies the qualitative and quantitative analyses they learned to a real-world scenario to determine if a Scour
Plan of Action is required to remedy the situation described in the scenario.
It is of immense importance to understand the dynamics between different factors to effectively control the calf scours
in a herd.
The objectives of the refurbishment were to prevent further deterioration of the structure by reducing water penetration, repair existing scour
damage, provide additional scour
protection to the toe of the weir, replace the weir crest and improve safety for future maintenance works.
He added: "It makes this country look like a third world country when we have to scour
the world in order to find teachers.
Future traffic patterns were evaluated and several scenarios were considered, including leaving the old bridge in place and performing scour
protection; building a new bridge upstream; and creating a wider, scour
During the conference call announcing the lawsuit, MPAA prexy Jack Valenti said that with a simple Scour
search, recently released films such as "X-Men" and "The Perfect Storm" could be easily downloaded.
Several tons were processed and returned to the scour
We are thrilled that both search users and the Webware community so strongly agree and have recognized Scour
as the next generation in search.
Dellaripa and Bailard (1986) suggested that the maximum scour
depth occurs for horizontal buoyant jet.
hazards--the water-induced erosion of the soil surrounding bridge foundations--and flooding are the most common causes of bridge failures in the United States.
For the fifth day in a row, bad weather prevented divers from getting inside the wreckage, but they were able to scour
the water around the vessel in a bid to find the three fishermen still missing in Glandore bay.
