Stability Criteria for Revetments

by Krystian W. Pilarczyk, Road and Hydraulic Engineering Div, Delft, Netherlands,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


A simplified 'black box' approach is presented for a number of revetment systems for banks and shore protection. The design criteria, based on the physical similarity with rip-rap and block revetments, are defined for wave and current attack.
