Design of riprap slope protection against wind waves. of riprap eroded measured as a function of the number of incident waves of several significant heights and three mean wave periods for three sizes of riprap and four different slopes. Get this from a library! Riprap for slope protection against wave action.. [United States. Soil Conservation Service. Engineering Division.;]. Riprap protection is simplest and easiest protection method to improve the antiscour ability; it was also the earliest method for river and coastal protection engineering. In submarine pipeline engineering, riprap protection is often used for the protection of pipeline in the shipping-busy area and waters with strong waves; if the pipeline.
