Hydraulic Structures, Gabion


For safe and economical design, scour surrounding the hydraulic structure is required to be prohibited. The present of any scour protection / controlling device surrounding hydraulic structure depends on how the device counters the scouring process. Efforts have been made to decrease the depth of scour by placing the gabion around bank and bed. In this paper, a detailed review of the work on scour reduction around bank side slope is presented including all possible aspect, such as water losses in canal and its reduction measures, scour and erosion countermeasures in waterways, design consideration of gabion wall for stream bank. This paper presented the relavent literatures on scour protection by using different methods.
