Abstract:

The need for the development of basic principles which can be used as a guide in the design of spur dikes or rock groins for the regulation and improvement of rivers, and a laboratory investigation of undertaken for this purpose are discussed. The investigation was designed to determine some of the factors which affect the performance of dikes as well as factors which should be considered in the design of dikes. Also discussed is a system for evaluating the performance of dikes and for correlating laboratory and field results.
