This specification covers requirements and test methods for Transition Mat . Table 1 is a material properties and performance specification based on flow rate and shear stress requirements. This specification is applicable to the use of a transition mat in a channel or outfall to prevent scouring below and downstream of a pipe or culvert outlet. The Transition Mat should mechanically protect soil from scour and erosion until the shear hydraulic forces have dissipated enough for other erosion control methods are able to prevent soil erosion.
