LARGE VERIFICATION TESTS ON ROCK SLOPE STABILITY

J.W. van der Meer, K.W. Pilarczyk

Abstract


A number of large scale tests on stability of rock slopes and gravel beaches is described and compared with small scale test results. The following topics are treated: the stability of a rock armour layer, the profile formation of a berm breakwater, the profile formation of gravel beaches, including ripple formation, and reflection and overtopping on rock slopes. The general conclusion is that scale effects could not be found.
