Scour-related problems have been extensively studied in the last decades by many researchers. Nevertheless, they still represent a challenge for hydraulic engineers because of their impact on the anthropized environment. The recent advancements of knowledge on sediment transport, river dynamics, multiphase flow processes and localized scour phenomena in correspondence with hydraulic structures have provided a better understanding of the complexity of both phenomenological and theoretical aspects characterizing scour-related problems. But they have also put in evidence the necessity to further deepen such a vast topic. Therefore, this special issue aims at providing the readership with a collection of high-quality papers that can represent a contribution to fill the gap of knowledge in scour processes and/or to stimulate new research perspectives. In this regard, papers presenting new experimental works, theoretical analyses, state of the art on specific sub-themes, case studies and thought-provoking opinions are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
