Abstract:

This paper summarizes a study of open channel flow conditions affecting riprap design and suggests a design procedure based on hydraulic principles rather than on rule-of-thumb formulas. Riprap design is idealized by study of the stability of a cubical element. Field and laboratory investigations required for the development of firm design criteria are recommended.
