The Author was to be congratulated for his initiative in proceeding with the tricky study of scour. Because scour took place under water (and mostly during floods) its study was not so easy. It was the energy of the water, obtained from its velocity, which was capable of moving a certain quantity of solid particles over the riverbed. If the supply from upstream was insufficient, scour took place. On the other hand, if velocity dropped, the same amount of material could not be carried away any more.
