      The slope protection used concrete slab panels. The concrete panels were available from some other project and were set on the surface of the eroding bluff. Although the panels were heavy enough to withstand the wave action itself, wave action during storms likely pulled, or pumped, the underlying soil out from between the gaps in the slabs. Design considerations for streambank protection: • Accessibility of site • Channel grade • Discharge frequency • Discharge velocities • Future maintenance • Alignment • Stream type and hydraulic geometry • Sediment load and bed material • Protection against failure • Undermining • Ends of revetment • Debris removal • Vegetative systems Protective measures for streambanks:File Size: 1MB.

    EROSION PROTECTION DESIGN Riprap General In general, the use of riprap is the preferred method for preventing erosion due to high flow velocities or wave action. Typically, the riprap protection consists of at least one riprap layer and a primary bedding layer. InFile Size: 41KB. Riprap Stability Under Wave Action The analysis of water motion on the slope is based on the standing‐wave solution of the finite‐amplitude shallow‐water equations with an implicit account of the effects of wave breaking. This simple model neglects the effects of permeability, bottom friction and water depth. Comparison is made.

    Riprap Slope Protection Riprap slope protec-tion is an erosion con-trol measure consisting of geotextile fabric and stone riprap that is placed on an unvege-tated slope to protect the soil from erosive forces. To protect slopes or similar areas subject to erosion by water. Resloping, Rock Toe and Rip Rap. Note: Any work that occurs in the lake, below the average summer water level, requires a when wave action is the primary cause of the loss of bank material. Ensure that the riprap extends up the slope no more than two feet above the normal high water line. 1. Native trees and/or shrubs should be planted File Size: 3MB.
