Gardiner Dam is located on the South Saskatchewan River approximately 100 km south of Saskatoon, SK. After the start of construction, the River Embankment experienced downstream movement in the shale portion of the ...
Vibration-Based Damage Detection For Timber Bridges
Vibration-based damage detection (VBDD) methods are global response-based methods that have the potential to provide valuable insight into the health of a structure. Dynamic characteristics obtained through vibration ...
In-situ stress analysis of southwest Saskatchewan
Scenarios developed by the National Energy Board of Canada predict that Canadian unconventional gas production, including coalbed methane (CBM), may be required to meet Canadian energy demands by the year 2008, and could ...
Life Cycle Analysis of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the Mining and Milling of Uranium in Saskatchewan
This thesis presents a detailed study of life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity during the uranium mining-milling phase of the nuclear fuel cycle for three paired uranium mine-mill operations in northern ...
Stiffness Degradation and Sample Damage of the Lea Park Formation Shale for A Slow-Moving Landslide in South-Central Saskatchewan
Geotechnical structures built on shales with smectite can result in relatively conservative design or metastable structures. A smecititic shale will be hydrophilic and prone to swelling and degradation upon drilling and ...
