Abstract: Spur dykes are the structures which are used to protect the eroding bank of rivers. They are sometimes also used to safeguard the life of many structures such as bridge piers, abutments etc. The efficiency of spur dykes has been checked in straight channels by conducting model tests in laboratories by many investigators. Very few studies were done in curv...

Abstract: Offshore Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) are used globally as a source of clean and renewable energy. Turbine efficiency can be improved by optimizing the geometry of the turbine blades. Turbines are generally designed in a way that its orientation is adjustable to ensure the wind direction is aligned with the axis of the turbine shaft. The deflectio...

Abstract: Offshore engineering projects require the management of a huge amount of heterogeneous georeferenced data - among others metocean, geophysical, geotechnical, and environmental, which need a Data Model, data visualization and data analytics features on a common geographic basis. A Digital Data Platform (DDP) has been developed on a GIS ambient with the aim...

Abstract: Present study is aimed at assessment of Bholari river sand for its geotechnical characterization and suitability as fine aggregate which is being quarried in Jamshoro district, Sindh, Pakistan. For this purpose, sand samples (n=11) were collected from quarry sites and main river channel. Physical properties reveal that Bholari sand is mainly coarse to fin...

Special Issue: "Critical studies of scour and sediment transport"-Call for Papers


To protect structures from scour, fundamental mechanisms of scour must be fully understood, and many studies have been conducted to understand how the scour happens and develops. Some protection techniques have also been developed and implemented. However, the scour protection designs are often either overly conservative or unsafe, especially when structures are geometrically complex. Comprehensive studies on scour through advanced experimental and numerical studies are necessary.

This special issue aims to publish articles that highlight the innovative research on scour and sedimentation.
