Bridge failure can result from scour of riverbed sediment near bridge abutments or piers. Fixed scour monitoring technologies provide a viable countermeasure option for measuring scour depth and alerting the appropriate personnel. Several fixed methods of monitoring bridge scour have been developed. To help the Minnesota Department of Transportation select the most appropriate instrument given site-specific bridge and stream conditions, the Scour Monitoring Decision Framework (SMDF) was developed. This selection tool is a macro-enabled Excel workbook that assists personnel with evaluation and selection of available fixed scour monitoring technologies for a specific bridge and stream. The user enters site-specific bridge and stream characteristics that are compared to instrument characteristics and results are presented in a percentage type score for each type of available instrument within the SMDF database.
