An unconventional slope stabilization technique locally known in Alberta as “Hardy Ribs” or “Hardy Walls” was implemented by Canadian National Railway Company (CN) to stabilize a very slow moving landslide. This site is located along the Assiniboine River valley in western Manitoba at CN Mile...
The slow movement of historic landslides is a constant reality in the Thompson River Valley, with twelve such slides located within ten kilometers of the town of Ashcroft, B.C. alone. Beginning at the end of the 19th century, numerous rapid slope failures were reported by local residents and the...
Characterization of a landslide-prone glaciolacustrine clay from the Thompson River Valley near Ashcroft, British ColumbiaDownload
Several large landslides have occurred in the Thompson River Valley near Ashcroft, British Columbia. The movement of these landslides have presented challenges for the operation of the two national railways that traverse this valley. The landslides are multiple retrogressive, translational,...
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....
Landslides have occurred throughout the Holocene geologic epoch and they continue to occur in the Peace River Lowlands of Alberta and British Columbia. This study was conducted to provide an understanding of the processes and extents of one such landslide situated on a major slope at the Town of...
Masters thesis which documents field observations from the Nozzle and Rockslide Pass rock avalanches. Also evaluates, modifies and calibrates a two-parameter hydraulic model for the purpose of rock avalanche and velocity prediction.
The Ripley Landslide is one of several slow moving landslides in the Thompson River Valley, near Ashcroft, British Columbia. Both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railway main lines cross this landslide. As a result, the site is an important part of Canada's transportation network and...
The Town of Peace River is over hundred years old. It was heavily urbanized by the late 1970s. Development extended to the geologically immature valley slopes of the Peace River and its tributaries. Triggered by various agents, landslides caused damage to houses and infrastructure developed on...
Canadian transportation industries have been using granular shear keys to remediate shallow slope instabilities for decades. Engineers have used limit equilibrium (LE) analyses as the standard method for designing these granular shear keys (Wyllie & Mah, 2004). These LE analyses do not account...
