Sharing the latest research on the scientific and engineering challenges of scour and erosion

Scour and erosion specialists from more than 30 countries met in Oxford from 12-15 September at ICSE 2016, the 8th International Conference on Scour and Erosion, hosted by engineering and environmental hydraulics research organisation, HR Wallingford.

Over 130 papers were presented during the four-day event to an international audience of scientists and engineers from the broad areas of civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, coastal and offshore engineering.

Topics covered included the fundamental mechanisms of erosion and scour, modelling (both physical and numerical) of erosion and scour processes and engineering applications that involve scour and erosion processes.

Professor Richard Whitehouse, Technical Director, HR Wallingford, said: “We have been delighted to host ICSE 2016 in Oxford. One of the strong features of the ICSE conferences has been the cross disciplinary collaborations and exchanges between geotechnical and hydraulic engineers, and we wanted to continue this tradition and build on the success of previous ICSE conferences.”

ICSE 2018 is now at the planning stages, and is due to be held in Taiwan in 2018.
