Abstract: This paper provides a practical stochastic method by which the burial and scour depths of truncated cones exposed to long-crested (2D) and short-crested (3D) nonlinear random waves can be derived. The approach is based on assuming the waves to be a stationary narrow-band random process, adopting the Forristall (2000) wave crest height distribution representing both 2D and 3D nonlinear random waves. Moreover, the formulas for the burial and the scour depths for regular waves presented by Catano-Lopera et al. (2…
