Mechanics of Riprap Movement in Tidal Flow

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


This analysis emphasizes the need to obtain data on the size and shape of riprap pieces as a function of movement, data which are surprisingly difficult to obtain from published studies. This analysis also indicates why riprap design for sites subject to reversible tidal flow must be somewhat more conservative for uniform flows of the same velocity.
