Abstract: The paper presents the results obtained in the finite element simulation of 8 years of construction of a section of Syncrude's tailings dyke, which is located in northern Alberta and has been used to store oil sand mining waste. The site investigation for the construction of this dyke...
Detection of shear zones in a natural clay slope using the cone penetration test and continuous dynamic samplingDownload
Abstract: The detection of shear zones along which a mass of soil is moving is essential for understanding the state of stability of natural slopes. Weaker zones in clay soils can be identified from low values of cone penetration test (CPT) tip resistance measured during penetration. This paper...
Mesofabric, Microfrabric, and Submicrofabric of Ice-Thrust Bedrock, Highvale Mine, Wabamum Lake Area, AlbertaDownload
The fabric of the ice-thrust argillaceous bedrock from a shear zone was studied in hand specimens, under a polarizing microscope and a scanning electron microscope. The fabric included principal displacement shears, Riedel shears, conjugate sets of particle alignments, cutans, lithorelics, and...
