ROCK ARMOR STABILITY FORMULAE-INFLUENCE OF STONE SHAPE AND LAYER THICKNESS

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

Abstract


A series of hydraulic model tests of armour rock stability have been carried out on a 1:2 slope armoured with rock of each of 5 different shape types. Results of these tests have been compared with damage predicted by van der Meer's stability formulae. Coefficients are suggested to describe the influence of armour shape and layer thickness in revised stability formulae.
