Abstract

A collective set of experimental results presented in this thesis provide a database of scour measurements spanning different subsea structural shapes and flow conditions. These measurements have been used to develop a number of predictive methods, ranging from empirical equations to calculation methods and finally to customised laboratory-based prediction methods. It is hoped that the methods developed in this thesis will provide a means to better predict scour at subsea structures.
