This study presents gene-expression programming (GEP) as an alternative soft computing tool for the prediction of scour below underwater pipeline across river. Actual laboratory measurements were used for the model development. The scour depth was formulated in terms of several influencing parameters. The results indicate that GEP is a very promising approach to predict the river pipeline scour depth.
