Stone weight limit data from ETL 1110-2-120 (HQUSACE, 1971 (14 May) "Additional Guidance for
Riprap Channel Protection, encl. 1," U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC). Relationship
between diameter and weight is based on the shape of a sphere.

The maximum limits at the W50 and W15 sizes can be increased as in the Lower Mississippi Valley Division
Standardized Gradations shown in EM 1110-2-1601.
