One of the main parameters in design of spur dikes is the estimation of local scour depth around their tail. Spur dikes are usually built in series and their stability depends on the stability of the first spur dike. In this research, an experimental investigation is carried out
in order to reduce local scouring around the first spur dike in a series of spur dikes (4 spur dikes). A smaller protective spur dike perpendicular to the flow direction is proposed to substantially reduce the local scouring. All experiments are performed in the experimental
flume with moving bed. Also, all the spur dikes are rigid, and are made of pressurized plywood, straight and non-submerged. For various experimental lengths (L') and distances(X) of the protective spur dike, different value of relative velocity (u/uc) is calculated. Finally, in favor of statistical analysis which has been done on the experimental data, an empirical equation for the relative scouring is derived.
