Abstract

The present paper aims to describe the scour hole process around large piles through laboratory tests under waves, unidirectional and tidal currents in time. The process for unidirectional and tidal currents has been compared. The tests have been carried out in a wave flume equipped with a two way recirculation pump at the Hydraulic Laboratory at Aalborg University. The mobile bed around the model was leveled with an automatic laser profiler and the results are graphically displayed as maximum scour depths and eroded volumes.
