USSD 2020 Fall Workshop Series

Introduction and Overview of Rock Scour -

4, 2-hour webinars

10:00 am - Noon MDT over 4 days

Eligible for 8 PDHs


Description

One of the many lessons learned from the 2017 Oroville spillway incidents was there is a poor understanding in the industry of assessing the erodibility (scour) of earthen (soil and rock) spillway chutes.  There appears to be a general lack of knowledge in the information, tools, methods, and interpretation of the erodibility of earthen materials.  This workshop will provide the knowledge and understanding of what information is needed for a scour assessment, what current tools and methods are available to perform a scour assessment, and provide case histories illustrating the use and interpretation of the results of scour analyses.

The workshop will be limited to the characterization, evaluation, analysis, and remediation of erodibility of rock scour.  Erodibility of soils will not be covered.

Objectives

Workshop will provide a general overview for the understanding of the factors that influence the erodibility of rock.

Course Agenda

Target Audience

Novice to seasoned professionals will all benefit from the workshop.  All sub-disciplines of civil engineering and engineering geology should attend.
