Riprap, also known as rip rock, rip-rap, shot rock, rock armor, or rubble, is man-placed rock or other material used to armor shorelines, streambeds, bridge abutments, pilings and other shoreline structures against scour and water, wave, or ice erosion. Common rock types used include granite and modular concrete blocks.

“The beauty of riprap,” Julien says, “is that it’s affordable, flexible, and handy. Even if riprap protection is degraded in a flood, you can always dump in more riprap.” Riprap is flexible, since it’s comprised of thousands or tens of thousands of individual rocks and stones that can be.

Technical Supplement 14G Grade Stabilization Techniques Purpose One of the most challenging problems facing river engineers today is the stabilization of degrading chan-nels.

Channel degradation leads to damage of both ri-parian infrastructure, as well as the environment. Bank protection is generally ineffective over the long term. Google's free service instantly translates words, phrases, and web pages between English and over other languages.

Hence, the cost estimation of a rehabilitation project may also involve capital and operating costs. While deferring the discussion of the economic evaluation of constructed facilities to Chapter 6, it is sufficient to point out that the stream of operating costs over time represents a series of costs at different time periods which have.

Stability of loose rock riprap used to protect stream banks from erosive forces due to flowing water is evaluated based on the ratio of static moments resisting overturning and those promoting overturning of a single rock particle.

The ratio of moments defines a safety factor that describes the potential for riprap failure. Tests conducted under National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project (2) confirmed the applicability of partially grouted riprap as a scour countermeasure for bridge piers.

After placing the rock, the voids of the riprap matrix are then partially filled with a Portland cement based grout by hose or tremie, often under water.

• Stabilization should consist of a layer of crushed ston e three inches thick, riprap or high velocity erosion control mats. • Stone stabilization should be used when grades exceed 2% or velocities exceed 6 feet per second.

• Stabilization should exte nd across the bottom of the swale and up both sides of the channel to a minimum. Laptop backpacks are just as the name suggests - backpacks that hold laptops. These packs incorporate a separate sleeve or compartment, often padded, that is designed to hold and protect a computer while you're on the go.

While laptop packs can be used for any purpose including commuting to and from work, they are most popular among students. Rock riprap, grouted rock, concrete lining, rock jet-ties, gabions, and spur dikes are examples of deflector structures that have historically been used in stream-bank protection work.

Except for rock jetties and spur dikes, these structures harden the bank and reduce roughness, thereby increasing flow velocity. Common. Coastal, Estuarial and Harbour Engineers' Reference Book, M.B.
