Only the abutments were supported on piles. Unfortunately, in the early 1950s when this bridge was being designed, no reliable method was available to predict scour depth. The bridge was opened to traffic on October 26, 1954, and on October 16, 1955, the Schoharie Creek experienced its flood of record (1900–1987) of 76,500 cfs (2170 m3 /s). The estimated discharge on April 5, 1987, when the bridge collapsed was 64,900 cfs (1840 m3 /s). The 1955 flood caused Cause of Collapse The severe flooding of Schoharie Creek caused local scour to erode the soil beneath pier 3, which then dropped into the scour hole, and resulted in the collapse of spans 3 and 4.

S. ) IMPLICATION OF BRIDGE FAILURES ON PRACTICE the earthquake displacements. These displacement effects were amplified in the bridges that were curved or skewed and were greater in spread footings than in pile-supported foundations. Effect on Bridge Practice The collapse of bridges during the 1971 San Fernando earthquake pointed out the inadequacies of the lateral force and seismic design provisions of the specifications. Modifications were made and new articles were written to cover the observed deficiencies in design and construction procedures.
