Scour and flow field evolution around a bridge pier with collar
 
Hello!

I am interested in studying the evolution of scour and flow field around a bridge pier with collar. The purpose of the collar is to reduce the scour at the base of the pier. Is it better to tackle this problem by writing my own code or is it better to use a software package? If it is better to use a package, then which package should I use? Any advice?

Sincerely,

A.K.Bhattacharya

The folks at Flow Science Inc, who market Flow-3D [a sponsor of this web site], solve the bridge pier scour problem as one of their marketing demos.

I imagine that they can help.
