Bridge scour has been a challenge across the world (accounts for 60% of bridge collapses in the US for example). Throughout the past decade, remote scour monitoring programs have been devised and implemented by transport authorities to facilitate bridge management. This research aims to develop cutting edge AI/ML algorithms based on real-time scour monitoring data to generate early warning systems to forecast scour depth at bridge piers.
