Description: Miscellaneous Report
Abstract: A review of 25 selected revetment types and a procedure for revetment design which includes identification of controlling site conditions, a comparative cost analysis method, and an example problem are presented. Design information on each type is listed in an Appendix. Design data include prototype installation examples, available model test results, and estimates of zero-damage wave heights, wave runup, and revetment wave reflection properties.
