Description: Technical note
Background: A rubble structure is made up of several layers of randomly-shaped, randomly-placed stones, protected with a cover layer of selected armor units of either of units of either quarrystone or specially shaped concrete units. The stability coefficient KD varies directly with several of the armor unit characteristics, including roughness of the armor unit surface, angular shape, and degree between units. Of these, the degree of interlocking, which is of special interest in this note, is the variable most easily altered by the placement technique.
