The objective of National Cooperative Highway Research Program Project 15-2 has been to develop criteria and design procedures for the use of aggregate or riprap linings for drainage channels suitable for conditions intermediate between those for which turf cover performs satisfactorily and those for which paved channels or pipe flumes are more economical. NCHRP Report, Tentative Design Procedures for Riprap-Lined Channels, reported on previous research on sediment transport and, based on this, linings for five channels were developed. Four of these types have been installed for field evaluation and have been performing satisfactorily.
