Webinar: Rocking it!

Using hydraulic modelling results for rip rap sizing.

Should shear-based rip rap sizing methods replace velocity-based methods given the availability of increasingly detailed 2D and 3D modelling results? What are the potential pitfalls of placing too much trust in your model results? Join us for an interactive discussion about best practices for scour protection.

Details:

Trace industry-standard rip rap sizing methodologies back to their original sources and investigate a number of failures to assess the suitability of various methods. In past engineering practice, shear-based methods for rock sizing were sometimes dismissed due to requirements for iterative solutions. Recent advances in computational analyses mean that shear-based analyses can now be readily adopted for previously impractical applications.
