Two series stability tests on riprap cover layers were conducted in a 2-ft-wide wave flume using a 115-scale model. In the first series, riprap cover layers on composite beach slopes of 130 and 18 were investigated. These slopes reproduced the natural beach slopes on each side of the entrance channel dredged from deep water to the in-shore harbor. In the second series of tests, riprap cover layers on a slope of 15 were investigated. These cover layers were for protection of the entrance-channel side slopes from the erosive action of waves. Also, the crown elevations of the various riprap sections were determined. Stable riprap designs were developed for all sections that required riprapping. Author
