The Ripley Landslide is one of the smallest among the 12 landslides at the Ashcroft-Thompson River Valley, located approximately 10 km south of Ashcroft, B.C. Since it was first identified in 1951, it has been studied by numerous researchers to understand the kinematics controlling its behaviour....
Third party utility and pipeline crossings are common construction projects in the railroad industry. Trenchless construction methods are typically used for the installation of third party crossings within a railroad right-of-way. The American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way...
This report summarizes the Canadian Rail Research Laboratory’s (CaRRL) findings after performing an in-depth investigation into the potential safety benefits gained from the introduction of enhanced train control (ETC) technology to the Canadian railway environment.
Abstract: Loose cohesionless saturated materials have proved responsible for a number of serious or catastrophic flow slides. Liquefaction failures with no obvious triggering mechanism have also been recorded. This phenomenon of sudden liquefaction without a presence of cyclic shear stresses is...
This survey is written to document a standard protocol for identifying mass-volume relationships for tailings materials. The need for establishing a standard protocol has arisen in the oil sands mining industry as different engineering disciplines; geotechnical, mining, chemical and mechanical,...
Development of an integrated tailings closure model using GoldSim: preliminary results and lessons learnedDownload
Traditionally, multidisciplinary simulation exercises often involves one discipline mechanistically using the output from a black-box model developed by another discipline. In this presentation, new techniques such as System Dynamics and Causal Loop Diagramming (CLD) will be used as the...
Traditionally, multi-disciplinary modelling exercises involve one discipline mechanistically using the output from a black-box model developed by another discipline. To address this deficiency, the research uses techniques relatively new to the geotechnical community, such as System Dynamics (SD)...
The Downie Slide case history demonstrates the importance of detailed site investigation and long-term monitoring, as well as the need for reinterpretation of the local geologic, structural, and groundwater conditions, and reassessment of slope stability as new information becomes available....
Effect of an Embankment Reconstruction Using a Wicking Geotextile in the Drainage and Strength of SubgradeDownload
Railways are essential for the transportation of goods and people and are an integral component of Canada’s economy (Leishman et al. 2017). As a part of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s (CP) Grade Stabilization/Remediation Plan, a 45 m section of a railway embankment located at Fort Saskatchewan...
