Abstract: In order to improve the understanding of scour processes in layered conditions for offshore foundations, a laboratory study was conducted regarding equilibrium scour depth vs. time curve and its adjustment to hyperbolic and exponential/linear combined functions. The present paper provides a mathematical study describing a set of scour tests in order to clarify the scour depth evolution for complex, non-cohesive soil configurations.
