In ports and harbours, the berth is susceptible to scour due to natural currents as well as vulnerable to scour caused by vessels’ propeller action. Especially during berthing and un-berthing, eroding forces on the seabed in front of the berth or on the slope underneath the berth can be substantial. The action of the vessels’ propeller is a main eroding factor due to the resulting current velocities.
