Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Partial Abstract: Tests were made on crushed graded limestone simulating riprap protection in two-dimensional flow in a 48-ft-long tilting flume. Three stone gradatiom involving different stone size ranges were tested. The results indicate that the root-mean-square of the surface protrusions is a suitable parameter for defining surface effects of densely spaced graded roughness elements such as quarry riprap.
