This course is an abbreviated presentation of NHI Course No. 135046. The course provides an understanding of and assistance in detecting hydraulic-related problems at highway bridges. The effects of steam instability, scour, erosion, and stream aggradation and degradation are covered. Countermeasures to these problems are discussed. This course concentrates on visual keys to detecting scour and stream instability problems and provides an introduction to portable scour monitoring instrumentation. The course emphasizes inspection guidelines to complete the hydraulic and scour-related coding requirements of the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS).

NHI Courses 135086 and 135087 are Web-based trainings and are prerequisites for NHI Hydraulics courses 135047 and 135048.

Objectives / Topics

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify stream instability and scour problems at bridges
  • Conduct field evaluations for scour and stream instability problems and properly code the results in the National Bridge Inventory
  • Recognize countermeasures for stream instability and scour
Target Audience

Federal, State, and local highway bridge inspectors responsible for detecting possible hydraulic-related problems that may threaten the integrity of highway bridges. Consultants who do bridge inspection work for the States may attend at no cost.
