• Assessment of HEC-18 equations for NCHRP abutment scour based on Kansas field data 

    Ambrose, Jacob Andrew (2013-07-19)
    Bridge failures are caused by many different failure mechanisms, not the least of which is scour. Scour occurs due to the erosion of streambed or bank material due to flowing water and is often considered as being ...
  • Assessment of HEC-18 scour equations for bottomless culverts based on Kansas field data 

    Bayazid, Mohammad Ali (University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2013-01-09)
    One of the main causes of bridge failure is scour at the abutments or piers. Scour is caused by increased velocities of water through bridge openings. Sediment is carried away from the foundations by high flows causing ...
  • Bed degradation of the lower Missouri River 

    Morgan, Jacob Alan (2013-06-04)
    The phenomenon of bed degradation can be due to a multiplicity of causes, but ultimately reflects a change in either the sediment input or sediment transport capacity of a system. Causes for the accelerated rate of degradation ...
  • Determination of scour susceptibility through rapid assessment 

    Moore, Aaron (University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2012-06-21)
    A need existed to efficiently predict the potential scour that could be expected at nearly 20,000 existing off-system bridges in the State of Kansas to assign a National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) Item 113 coding. ...
  • Hydraulic Design of Interlocking Concrete Permeable Pavement 

    Stochl, Monica Rene (2015)
    Stormwater management and design was developed to reduce the impacts of runoff due to the increase in urbanization and impervious area in the hydrologic system. Stormwater management takes many different forms, including ...
