Abstract: 

INTRODUCTION: ROCK IS A COMMONLY USED CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT. RUBBLE MOUND STRUCTURES CONSISTING OF INTERIOR GRADED LAYERS OF STONE AND AN OUTER ARMOR LAYER OF STONE ARE USUALLY EMPLOYED IN THE COASTAL AREA AS BREAKWATERS AND COASTAL PROTECTION STRUCTURES SUCH AS JETTIES, GROINS, AND SHORELINE REVETMENTS. EVEN THOUGH ROCK IS QUARRIED TO PRODUCE ARMOURSTONE AND FILLING MATERIAL TO BE USED IN COASTAL STRUCTURES AND OTHER CIVIL ENGINEERING WORKS, HOWEVER, STANDARD SOLUTIONS DO NOT GENERALLY EXIST IN THIS FIELD OF ENGINEERING. EFFORTS TO PRODUCE GUIDANCE DOCUMENTS FOR APPLICATION OF ROCK IN COASTAL STRUCTURES HAVE BEEN IMPORTANT IN THE 90’S. THE FIRST VERSION OF THE MANUAL ON THE USE OF ROCK IN COASTAL AND SHORELINE ENGINEERING WAS PRODUCED IN 1991, RESULTING FROM COLLABORATION BETWEEN CIRIA, UK AND CUR, HOLLAND. THIS MANUAL COVERED THE CONCEPTION, DESIGN AND MATERIALS USED IN CONSTRUCTION OF MARINE AND COASTAL WORKS IN ROCK. AN ENLARGED EDITION WAS PUBLISHED BY CUR IN 1995 AND 2000 AND ROCK MANUAL PUBLISHED BY CIRIA IN 2007.
