Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The reliability of bridge foundations under unstable channel conditions of channel bed degradation and bank widening, is quantified. This provides a basis for making decisions through simple ranking or risk analyses. This same technique can be applied to culverts and to highways to adjacent to unstable streams by changing the definition of failure.
