Wave forces and structure response of placed block revetments on inclined structures

More Info


A summary of the theoretical and empirical knowledge of the stability of block-revetment structures under wave attack is given. This has been accomplished by selecting the very essence of the design formulas from (CUR/TAW, 1992/1994) and completing it afterwards with a database of results of large-scale model studies from all over the world. Furthermore, the additional filter criteria and geotechnical criteria will be presented. For each of these mechanisms easy to use design formulas are given. Finally, the specific design considerations related to block revetments will be discussed.
