Considering these findings, the researchers recommend the modified equation for use on a broader range of noncohesive soil conditions for pier scour.
Balancing safety and cost is critical to smart investment when estimating scour at bridge piers in noncohesive soils. This report summarizes a study to improve techniques for estimating scour under a broad range of conditions using quantitative measures of reliability and accuracy.
Reinforced Earth[R] is a construction material formed by the association of noncohesive soil with linear metallic reinforcements.
Based on the model test of piles in noncohesive soil slopes, Muthukkumaran [10] discussed the effects of slope ratio, soil parameters, loading direction, and pile foundation position on pile foundation.
As in Hong Kong, most sliding body materials are noncohesive soil with good permeability, so slope occurrences have close relevance with high intensity and short-time rainfall.

Those walls were built in a wide variety of cohesive and noncohesive soils, including sand, silty sand, clayey silt, residual soil, and weather rock.
The solid particles of noncohesive soils are poor conductive while electrical current flow occurs only in intergranular spaces filled with mineralized water.
The [k.sub.0] for cohesive and noncohesive soils is normally considered to be a function of Poisson's ratio and a function of the angle of internal friction [phi], respectively.
(2004a, 2004b) have also reported the existence of tunnel erosion process in nondispersive material resulting from the liquefaction of noncohesive soils and mine spoil containing high silt and sand content.
It is interesting to note that at 30% slope, where detachment limited conditions are more likely to prevail, it was not the well-aggregated soils that were the most erodible, but the sandy noncohesive soils. These results highlight: the process-specific nature of erodibility, and indicate some of the difficulties associated with attempting to predict erodibility from a single set of properties under a range of erosive regimes.
