Scour around bridge piers as a result of flooding is the most common cause of bridge failure (Richardson and Davis, 1995; Johnson and Dock, 1996; Lagasse et. al., 1995; Melville and Hadfield, 1999). The bridge failures result in excessive repairs, loss of accessibility, or even death (Chiew, 1995). The potential cost including human toll and monetary cost of bridge failure due to scour damage has highlighted the need for better scour prediction and protection methods. A large depth of foundation is required for bridge piers to overcome the effect of scour which is a costly proportion. Therefore, for safe and economical design, scour around the bridge piers is required to be controlled. In this article we have analysed various vulnerable zones formed due to the flow of water in channel.
