Learn about our award winning scour research

Posted: 07-Nov-2012

Press release - Researchers at HR Wallingford have been presented with the ICE David Hislop award 2012 for their paper on “Evaluating scour at marine gravity foundations”.

Whitehouse, R.J.S., Sutherland, J. and Harris, J.M. (2011). Evaluating scour at marine gravity structures. Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Maritime Engineering, 164, December, Issue MA4, pp. 143 – 157.

This paper formed part of a special issue on marine scour edited by Dr Harris and Prof. Whitehouse. The annual ICE Awards Ceremony celebrates excellence within civil engineering and technical writing, and the outstanding commitment of the award winners.

HR Wallingford is internationally recognised as a leading expert in the analysis and modelling of scour processes, particularly with regard to marine scour. The work presented in these papers forms part of the output from an active research and development programme into scour at structures in the marine, estuarine and fluvial environments. The scour specialists at HR Wallingford are ready to assist the market in de-risking scour problems.

We are running a marine scour course on Thursday 6 December 2012. This course presents an ideal opportunity to meet our award winners, Prof. Whitehouse, Dr Harris and Dr Sutherland, and to learn about the assessment of scour risk at marine structures and appropriate use of scour countermeasures.
