The use is considered of filters for the prevention of erosion on beaches of lakes and seas or river banks. The conditions that must be satisfied by the filters are set forth, and the construction of such artificial reventments is discussed. Practical experience is recounted, and it is observed that the design of erosion protection can be simplified by carefully dimensioning the armour layer of stone and by replacing the different classified layers by a single well graded layer of gravel. The uncritical use filters of several layers, each of uniformly graded materials protection against erosion is neither advisable nor economic.
