    Revetment systems against wave attack discusses the functions of revetments and the different aspects of structural performance, and includes example specifications and calculations. This enables the engineer to choose the most stable, appropriate and cost-effective revetment system for a given situation. The book guides the engineer through the design process, from identifying hydraulic loading conditions and initial dimensioning of the revetment elements to detailed design of the revetment elements to ensure adequate protection against design wave conditions. The range of materials for the generation of alternative solutions to the problem are considered, thereby allowing comparison of different solutions during the design process. A summary of design methods for easy reference is also included.
