Bed sills are often used to limit bed degradation, to control bed erosion around bridge piers or downstream stilling basins of dams. In this paper, the local scour that takes place downstream of the bed sill, in addition to the general erosion process, is examined. The data collected during experimental work are used to analyse the applicability of the relationship found in the literature and to define the relation between the maximum scour depth and the flow rate.
