Abstract:

This paper presents the results of a two-dimensional laboratory evaluation of a beach revetment plan that uses common concrete building blocks as the revetment armor unit. This type of revetment is appropriate for use along semiprotected shorelines of bays, reservoirs, lakes and other areas exposed to low to moderate wave attack. The research was conducted at prototype scale in the two-dimensional large wave tank facility at the U.S. Army Coastal Engineering Research Center CERC, Ft. Belvoir, Virginia.
