Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering

 

Tuesday, 11 April 2017

12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (CST)

Best Western Seven Oaks 777 Albert Street Regina, SK S4R 2P6 Canada

TOPIC: Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering has seen a rapid growth of interest in risk assessment methodologies. This seems a logical evolution since soils and rocks are among the most variable of all engineering materials and geotechnical engineers must often make do with materials they are dealt with at any particular site. A probabilistic analysis may lead to a “probability of failure”, as opposed to the traditional “factor of safety”, representing a fundamental shift in the way engineers need to think about the suitability of their designs. The seminar will review some of the benefits and potential pitfalls of these different approaches and describe some introductory methods of probabilistic analysis.

PRESENTER DETAILS: Dr. Vaughan Griffiths, , Ph.D., D.Sc., P.E., D.GE., FICE, FASCE, Colorado School of Mines

Dr. Vaughan Griffiths completed his Master’s degree at UC Berkeley and Doctoral degrees at the University of Manchester, UK. He was a Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, UK, before moving to his current position as Professor of Civil Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, USA, where his primary research interests lie in application of finite element and risk assessment methodologies in civil engineering.

 Evaluating liquefaction in finely interbedded sand, silt and clay deposits

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

12-1:30

Seven Oaks, 777 Albert St

Admission: $20, $10 for Students, (Includes Buffet Lunch)

The Regina Geotechnical Group is pleased to host the Cross Canada Lecture Series.  This fall's speaker is Dr. Ross Boulanger of the University of California, Davis.  Dr. Boulanger will present the following topic:

Evaluating liquefaction in finely interbedded sand, silt and clay deposits

Abstract: Current liquefaction evaluation procedures have a tendency to over-predict liquefaction effects in finely inter-bedded sand, silt and clay deposits. The nature and extent of this apparent bias are illustrated using case histories, and the potential reasons discussed. Three related research projects are then described.
The performance of the Cark Canal in the 1999 Kocaeli earthquake is re-examined using one-dimensional CPT-based liquefaction vulnerability indices and nonlinear deformation analyses with spatially correlated stochastic models; the results illustrate the importance of spatial variability to field performance and the inherent limitations in 1D LVI methods. The relationship between cyclic strength and cone penetration resistance in low-plasticity fine-grained soils is examined using laboratory testing and simulated cone penetration resistances; the results provide insights on potential biases in existing liquefaction triggering models. An axisymmetric direct cone penetration model is developed for use with the MIT-S1 constitutive model and its capabilities illustrated by simulating penetration resistance in anisotropic clay. Future research needs and recommended practices for evaluating liquefaction effects in finely interbedded sand, silt and clay deposits are discussed.

Canada’s latest Infrastructure Report Card (CIRC) was released in January 2016. The CIRC project is the continuation of a collaboration struck in 2012 between the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA), the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). The 2016 edition also received support from the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) as well as the Federal-Provincial/Territorial Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Committee.

The Report Card provides comprehensive, scientifically based, and standardized information on the inventory, condition and asset management practices of Canada’s core public infrastructure. It is intended to assist policy-makers, asset owners and managers in their infrastructure asset management, planning and decision-making. The total value of core municipal infrastructure in Canada was estimated to be $1.1 trillion, one-third of which was identified as being in fair, poor or very poor condition. This infrastructure represents a call for action – and governments at all levels seemed primed to respond with significant investments in a range of infrastructure systems across Canada.

The speakers present a detailed overview of the CIRC process and results and provide some ideas for how we can engineer our infrastructure to make sure it can be sustained over the long term.

Guy Félio Ph.D, P.Eng., FCSCE, is R.V. Anderson’s Infrastructure and Facilities Management (IFM) Group Leader and an infrastructure management specialist. Dr. Félio has more than 30 years of experience in the area of municipal engineering and management as a university professor, researcher, consultant and policy advisor. During his career at the National Research Council, he led the Urban Infrastructure Research group, focusing on technological and management improvements such as InfraGuide. He was a City Councilor in Clarence-Rockland (ON) from 2010 to 2014. He authored the first Canadian Infrastructure Report Card published in 2012.

Nick Larson MEPP, P.Eng. is a consulting engineer with GM BluePlan Engineering where he works with municipalities on a variety of asset management and infrastructure planning initiatives. Nick represented the CSCE on the Project Steering Committee (PSC) that developed the 2016 Canadian Infrastructure Report Card. Through his role with the PSC, he helped to shape both the survey that was used to collect infrastructure data from municipalities, as well as the structure of the 2016 CIRC.

present:

2016 Scholastic Chess National Challenge

University of Regina

May 22-23, 2016

This event will bring all the best junior chess players (Grade 1 to Grade 12) from ten provinces and their families to Regina, SK for at least three days with approximate three hundred persons in total. The event of 2016 Scholastic Chess National Challenge will showcase the city of Regina and the province of Saskatchewan to the most talented students and junior chess players from ten provinces in Canada.

This will be the first year that this important national event is held in Saskatchewan. All of the other provinces have hosted this event, many of them multiple times. Chess is extremely important for the development of young minds. Many provinces recognize that by teaching chess in school. There is no gender bias in chess. Your brains are what matter, not your strength. Countless studies have shown the academic benefits to students who play chess, and by promoting chess, this will help to build support for more chess to be played in Regina and Saskatchewan. That will improve the academic performance of Regina students especially math, science and logic thinking. And it will help to reduce crime as chess teaches every player that every action has a consequence. The ability to understand consequences helps to reduce crime.

Xiangning (Simon) Li, the treasurer of Saskatchewan Scholastic Chess Association (SSCA) and is also an executive of RES. He invites all that are interested in chess to spectate. Sponsorship opportunities are also requested. Gold sponsorship is $1000 or more. Silver sponsorship is $500 to $999. Bronze sponsorship is $200 to $499. Sponsors will be recognized as a contributor to the event in the booklet given to every player; it will be also announced at the event. It will show the generosity and hospitality of Saskatchewan engineers and people.

Please contact him if you have any question or need more information about this national chess challenge. He can be reached at (306) 993-1037 or email xiangning.li8@gmail.com.

Relationship among creep, secondary consolidation and stress relaxation using a simple viscous model and incorporating the effects of the rigidity of the testing system

Event to be held at the following time, date, and location:

Wednesday, 16 March 2016 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CST)

Best Western Seven Oaks

777 Albert Street Regina, SK S4R 2P6 Canada

Speaker: Dr. Gilberto Alexandre, PhD, P.Eng

Time and rate effects can significantly impact the design of structures involving soils and rocks. In this talk, results of special oedometric and triaxial tests lasting from days up to 9.5 months carried out at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) are shown and discussed. Tests were carried out on a reconstituted Norwegian clay (Onsøy clay) as well as on an offshore sand from the North Sea. It is shown that the effect of the rigidity of the testing system plays a role on the observed soil behavior. In addition, it is shown that, by combining the effect of the rigidity of the system with a simple viscous model, the observed soil behavior can be satisfactorily reproduced.

Characterization of Subgrade and Unbound Granular Materials for Flexible Pavements: Evolutions and Future Challenges

Speaker: Dr. Hamid Soleymani   Flexible pavements are the most common pavement type in many countries. Initial pavement design methods used principals and concepts from geotechnical engineering; however, particular characteristics of pavement structures, such as multi-layer systems and dynamic nature of traffic loads, required that specific methodologies for the design and analysis of pavements be developed. Over the past century, pavement analysis has evolved from a single-layer system under a single static load to a state-of-the art 3-D, multi-layer, nonlinear finite element system under dynamic moving loads. The consequence of such developments is reflected in longer service life of pavements and higher levels of sustainability and serviceability. This presentation reviews developments in subgrade and unbound pavement layer materials characterization for flexible pavements over the last century. The latest procedures and technologies in the characterization of subgrade and unbound pavement layer materials in the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), developed in the USA under NCHRP 1-37A study, as well as the latest technologies for quality control/assurance of subgrade and unbound pavement layers will be discussed. In addition, future challenges that highway agencies are facing in the characterization and application of unbound materials for the design and construction of pavements will be delineated.

Reliability-Based Geotechnical Design: Link between Theory and Practice (click to buy tickets)

Travelodge 4177 Albert Street South Regina, SK

General admission $20

Student admission $15

Reliability-Based Geotechnical Design: Link between Theory and Practice:

Geotechnical design codes are increasingly migrating towards reliability-based design concepts. What this means is that geotechnical designs are starting to be specifically targeted at a failure probability that is societally acceptable and that depends on the severity of failure consequences. For example, the foundation of a hydro-electric dam, whose failure may result in significant downstream damage and potential life-loss, must be designed to have a lower failure probability than the foundation of a storage shed.

In order to properly employ reliability-based design concepts, a basic understanding of the probability concepts, as well as the link between site and model understanding and failure probability, is required. This lecture explains the basic ideas of probability theory and how they are used in modern geotechnical design concepts. Questions, such as "How are standard site investigation results used to estimate the probability of failure of a designed geotechnical system?” are addressed and illustrated using a number of examples.

Speaker - Dr. Gordon Fenton of Dalhousie University

Dr. Gordon Fenton is a cross-appointed professor to the Civil Engineering and Engineering Mathematics Departments at Dalhousie University. His research interests include probabilistic modeling of geotechnical systems and the development of geotechnical reliability-based design codes and have led to his authoring of over 140 peer-reviewed papers.

Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers Conference

June 7-10, 2015

Delta Hotel, Regina, SK

http://www.cite7.org/Regina2015/

The transportation field promotes sustainability and economic viability through such focused disciplines as innovative infrastructure design, traffic policy development, walkable and multi-use infrastructure integration into our neighbourhoods, collision analysis and reduction initiatives, and overall traffic congestion and pollution reduction efforts. Regional growth is driving larger area thinking and planning, and is revealing alternative solutions to support the communities as they expand. Banks and investors continually fund large infrastructure projects, which results in greater infrastructure investment at the local, regional and national levels. All tied together by the transportation profession, which plays a vital role in Supporting a Healthy, Vibrant Community.

We are planning tours to include such learning trips as the Global Transportation Hub, Wascana Park, Bike and Walking Tour, Regina Revitalization Initiative, RCMP Grounds, and the future CFL stadium (construction will be underway in 2015). These tours will give you an indication of the exciting opportunities for our profession in Saskatchewan.

Gainer the Gopher is on board with the Saskatchewan Section to help us celebrate and promote the conference. He will be visiting your local CITE Section to ask your assistance to raise awareness for Regina2015. He also has prizes for contest winners! To learn more, visit Gainer's webpage.

Please plan to attend Regina2015, and help us to celebrate our Section's 25th Anniversary.

Canadian Coalition for Women in Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology Coference

May 22-24, 2014

Delta Regina, 1919 Saskatchewan Drive, Regina, SK

The Canadian Coalition for Women in Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology (CCWESTT) is hosting a national conference in Regina in May 2014! The conference theme is “Open Opportunities: Mentoring the Future” and an exciting agenda has been planned to allow for a national discussion on how to move from strategic planning to actively reaching, recruiting and retaining women in non-traditional occupations.

Thursday's welcome event will encourage mingling and learning at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. Conversation is sure to flow as you wonder through exhibits, complete grownup demonstrations, embrace the music, and challenge the  magician. Even the deserts will be something to talk about as we are inspired by science and discovery.

Friday and Saturday morning's will kick off with a short yoga class to get your body and mind prepared for the days events. Each class will be led by an experienced yoga instructor and open to everyone from beginner to expert.

Friday evening’s banquet will be the ultimate trifecta with great food, great entertainment and great music. Get beyond the ice with an interview with Haley Wickenheiser, followed by the fabulous JUNO nominee Little Miss Higgins.  This event will be the guaranteed highlight of the conference.

Saturday evening’s reception is an excellent opportunity to relax and debrief from the conference with a sommelier pairing fine wines with our Saskatchewan inspired appetizers.  It doesn’t end there, Rosie and the Riveters will have you tapping your toes as they take you back in time with their 1940’s charm
