Grout filled revetment mattress is a revetment only, and must be placed on a stable slope. Care should be taken that the revetment is trenched in at the top, bottom, and sides of the structure to prevent outflanking and/or undermining. It is recommend that each project involving water flow or wave action, should be specifically designed by a qualified hydraulic engineer, for the local site conditions i.e. Stream velocity or wave heights and ground conditions.
There are four basic types of revetment mattress:
- Filter point (most commonly used)
- Collapsible block
- Uniform cross section
- Growth mat
