Abstract: Bridge piers having non-uniform cross section over their height are termed as compound bridge piers. A vast amount of literature is available on the topic of scour around bridge piers having uniform cross sections. But only a few investigators have made studies related to scour around compound bridge piers. This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the effect of footing size and location on the temporal variation of scour around compound bridge piers.
