Abstract:

A series of tests was conducted at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES to evaluate the effectiveness of several schemes of using gabions for bank protection. Specifically, efforts were directed at evaluating the use of gabions for hard points or toe protection similar to the way riprap is used for hard points or toe protection at several prototype sites in the Vicksburg District.
