STORY OF A BERM TYPE REVETMENTORDU GIRESUN AIRPORTTHE FIRST SEA FILL AIRPORT OF TURKEY
AbstractOrdu Giresun Airport is the first airport of Turkey that is completely built on a sea fill area situated at the Black sea coast of Turkey and at equal distances to Ordu and Giresun cities. The reclamation covers 1.6 million m2 area that is surrounded with a total of 8.6 km revetment. The longest part of the revetment which is in parallel with the shoreline and at the offshore side of the reclamation area, is planned as a berm type revetment. In this sense, the preliminary cross section provided at the tender stage is checked, modifications are performed considering several criteria such as economics, performance, availability of rocks, etc. In addition to the design stages, several cross sections together with the suggested modifications are checked with laboratory tests. This paper covers the design stages where this criteria is taken into account, laboratory tests and the performance of the cross section during construction stages.
