riprap is further subdivided by placement method into placed riprap, hand-placed riprap, and plated riprap. Placed riprap is graded stone put on a prepared slope in such a manner that segregation will not take place. Placed riprap forms a layer of loose stone; individual stones can independently adjust to shifts in or movement of the base material.
