Revetments are most common structures in coastal engineering. The design of revetments is a complex process and needs proper understanding of loads and structural interactions. The basic information on composition and dimensioning of various types of revetments under wave and current attack are provided. Special attention is given to filter structures using geotextiles and transitions into splash areas and toe protection. Reference to actual developments and manuals is also provided.
