Abstract : A Debris management program, written in C++, has been coded and tested. The program supplies debris management support information based upon the input channel parameters, geomorphic relationships and engineering predictors developed through this research. The program predicts the potential for scour at bridge piers due to debris build-up. The executable PC program is now available on disk. A user support manual, with a test data set, has also been written.
