Comparative study of block revetments for dikes
In the context of the “Comparative study of block revetments for dikes”, Deltares investigated the
type specific stability of all modern block revetments. Because the currently available block types
have differences in shape and design, they each have specific qualities. For example, some are
more stable than others or reduce the wave run-up better. The research was conducted to support
the optimum choice of block revetment for each specific case and to include the performance of each type in the design tool Steentoets.
