about scour around structures
Hi all,

I am simulating the scour around structure, however, it seems that there is any scour hole around structure and the scour rate is also not practical. Did someone met these problems? I appreciate your any suggestion.

Re: about scour around structures
hi Zhao there are two important parameters the grid size which may reach to 1cm and the erosion parameter in range of 0.05 Shokry

Re: about scour around structures
Hi Shokry,

Thanks for your suggestion. You mean that the max. of grid size may reach 1cm in all domain or around structures. I can set up the erosion parameter to 0.05, right? Do both the grid size and erosion parameter have significant influence of scour hole's forming? Thanks
