This manual describes current methods for designing dike revetments of pitched blocks and block mattresses. The use of such revetments on river and canal banks is also considered briefly. In particular, guidelines are discussed for preparing designs for new revetments , methods are also given for checking existing revetments. The manual is aimed at the practical application of the result of basic research into block pitching. Pitched dike revetments include following revetment systems : basalt and other natural rock , concrete blocks and column and other small cement concrete elements , and block mattresses. Two design methods (preliminary design method & analytical design method) are worked out in detail. Geotechnical instability caused by wave action is treated separately. The construction aspects are discussed principally in relation to the transition structures and the design aspects of the structure as a whole.
