Since the collision of flow to spur dike occurs at tip, so the slot near the spur dike tip and the passing of flow reduce the eddy flows in the front tip of spur dike.
Due to the collision of flow with spur dike, the power of eddy flows near the tip is more, but it is decreased by creating slot near the tip and passing of eddy flows, then scouring around the tip will be decreased.
In case of the current increase near the current lead areas, formation of intensive eddy flows in horizontal plane occurred.
