288 model tests on basins for circular and rectangular culverts were conducted at Colorado State University. The models ranged in size from a 6-by 12-in. rectangular culvert with 1/Min. riprap to a 36-in. diameter pipe with 7-in. diameter rock. A method for the design of rock-riprapped basins for culvert outfalls was developed from a study of the model data. The method and design aids are presented.
