DURABILITY OF ROCK ARMOUR ON COASTAL STRUCTURES

A.P. Bradbury, N.W.H. Allsop

Abstract


This paper summarises many of the recent advances in the testing of rock quality for coastal structures. Advanced work on armour profile and armour unit shape descriptors is identified. A set of assessment methods for monitoring armoured slopes in the field are described, with examples drawn from recent monitoring exercises. The paper concludes by describing future directions of research in this field.
