Rible Dam in Spain

Salto Caxias RCC gravity dam is 67 m high and 1100 m long. The dam was finished in 1998.

The RCC is placed in 30 cm thick layers and compacted with 10t vibratory rollers. For the purpose of improving cohesion and reducing permeability, a 1 cm thick mortar layer is placed between the RCC layers. On the upstream face, in order to improve watertightness, CVC is placed simultaneously with the RCC, in a 75 cm wide band. Crushed powdered aggregates were used in the mix with content rage from 160 to 200 kg/m3 to improve cohesiveness and permeability of RCC.

The project is owned by Companhia Paranaense de Energia (COPEL)
