About this book

This book discusses the functions of revetments and the different aspects of structural performance. It includes example specifications and calculations that enable the engineer to choose the most stable, appropriate and cost-effective revetment system for a given situation. The book guides the engineer through the design process, from identifying hydraulic loading conditions and initial dimensioning of the revetment elements to detailed design of the revetment elements to ensure adequate protection against design wave conditions.

A range of materials for the generation of alternative solutions to the problem are considered, and a summary of design methods is provided.
