Welcome to the RITA Scour Project Official Website

The project proposes the use of automated magnetostrictive scour sensor whisker arrays for bridge piers, bridge abutments, and culverts for monitoring of bank stability. Data collected by the sensors will be processed remotely and information about the state of scour determined by the sensors would then be relayed to bridge owners via cellular data link. Data retrieval and visualization tools are intrinsic to the project to support decision making by bridge owners in management and maintenance decisions. This project will test the ability of the system to detect scour and develop the decision support engine to aid bridge owner make cost effective maintenance decisions.
