For centuries dikes in the Netherlands have been protected against wave attack by revetments constructed of pitched blocks. Due to new insights into the behaviour of pitched blocks and increased hydraulic boundary conditions, a significant part of those dikes does not meet the current prescribed standards and safety norms anymore. As a result,...

In this manual design rules and guidelines for the design of Polyurethane Bonded Aggregate revetments (PBA-revetments) are presented, based on results from laboratory research, full scale model tests, and experience and field measurements. Research is still ongoing, but from the first results some insight into the structural behaviour of PBA can...

A new construction method of Polyurethane (PUR)-bonded revetments has been tested successfully on various locations in Germany, in the Netherlands, in France, and in the UK. See also the presentation of Bijlsma on this ICE breakwater conference. This year a series of large scale test in the GWK-facility in Hannover have been executed. This...

The elastocoast system can be used as an armour layer on revetments. The bonding system exists of a mix of crushed stones and 2-component polyurethane. This bonding system creates bonding forces between the stones and an open (porous) structure can be obtained. Elastocoast is developed by Elastogran GmbH, a BASF subsidiary. The response of an...

A new construction method of Polyurethane (PUR)-bonded revetments has been tested successfully as stable breakwater constructions on various locations in Germany (“Hamburg Hallig”, “Holm Gröde”), as dike revetment in the Netherlands (breakwater revetment in Zuidbout and Petten), as shoreline protection in France (canal embankment near Le Havre),...

In September 2007 two prototype pilot tests were constructed along the Dutch coast with an experimental, polymer based revetment. An area of 490 m2 was put on a dike slope in the Eastern-Scheldt basin, and another 385 m2 on the horizontal surface of a beach groyne near the Pettemer Zeewering along the North-Sea coast. The revetment consists of...

Elastocoast is a new type of revetment system for use as a cover layer on dikes. It consists of granular material (rocks), which is fixed together with a two-component polyurethane adhesive. In the Elastocoast system each individual rock is covered with a thin film of polyurethane. When the adhesive is cured, this film fixes the rocks together...
