Concrete Face Gravel Fill Dam
Derince Dam was designed as clay core compacted gravel fill dam previously. But at the project site there is a lot of problem to obtainin clay material. Therefore, Derince Dam should be designed without any need of clay material.
Clay core is the impervious layer of the dam. The new dam type was determined as concrete face gravel fill dam. In this type, the impervious layer would be the concrete face and thus there will be no need to use clay material in the dam design anymore.
Derince Dam has a height of 52 m from thalweg and 62.80 m from the foundation. At the top of the dam there is a parapet of 3 m height. The crest elevation of the dam is 122.00 m.
