Articulated concrete revetment mattresses have been and are being laid on the bed and banks of the Lower Mississippi River to stabilize bends and prevent recession of the banks. Exploratory experiments have been conducted at the St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory to study some of the factors believed to contribute towards revetment instability and to explore the process of initial failure of the revetment as indicated by a movement or settling of the revetment mattress.
