Presentation of the conclusions of a research internship at TUM carried out in 2010.
The scour phenomenon is the fact that around marine structures embedded into the sediment bed, vortices are created which "scour", that is, erode the sediment bed and thus make the structure vulnerable. This study shows that experiments and empirical formulas produced by different researchers around the world show biases linked to their different experimental settings, relatively to the water inlet conditions.
