This paper deals with scour around a circular pile exposed to a steady current. A 3D numerical model incorporated with the k-w,SST closure coupled with the sediment-continuity equation and a bedload sediment transport formula has been used to predict the scour. 3D calculations have also been carried out for a plane rigid bottom for reference purpose. The predicted flow features are apparently in fairly good agreement with the experimental data. Early calculations indicate that the model is able to predict the scour properties satisfactorily in the initial stages of the scour process, up to scour depth of 0.6-0.7 times the pile diameter. Calculations that describe the entire scour process (including the equilibrium stage) are underway.
