Dear experts
I want to know, how can I calculate the scour hole in a local scour problem?
would you please help me with the question?

Hi Hanif,
As I know there is no tool to estimate the volume of scour hole in FLow3d. However, you can easily measure the depth and the width of the scour hole by using the interactive probe tool in FlowSight.
Hope you catch it up.

maybe try creating a sampling volume around the area where you expect scour. You should be able to calculate from that output.
