The global warming challenge is mostly the cause of floods today. Individuals everywhere in India had to deal with the impact of fluid load affecting bridges in the last 30 years. The latest methodology analyzed is a Finite Volume Technique (F.V.M.). In this research, actual dimensions of the bridge are used and for this, the data is collected from the Government of Maharashtra public works department (PWD Miraj). Also, Indian standard codal equations for pressure exerted on bridge pier are compared. For bridge pier modelling, square and circular segments are assessed. In addition to bed and sidewalls, consideration was given to simplifying the nonslip boundary of the stream for the fluid zone. The dimension of the fluid domain is 21 m x 23 m x 21.145m and the size of the pier is 1.5 m x 1.5 m. A numeric model with a water rate from 0.5 m/sec to 10 m/sec is established to test the impact of hydrodynamic pressure on the platform. The configuration conditions by all pier models are the same. Concerns about the effects of fluid flowing through a pier surface and pressure circulation combined with pier height are essential for this research. This study emphasizes that AS5100, I. R. C. 6, I. R. S. technique is ideal for a suitable conservative measurement of the pressure in square cross-section, but has a harmful margin of protection for circular cross-section bridge piers and hence can be used cautiously.
