Drawdown Stability of a Compacted Shale Rockfill

Load Testing of Permanently Cased Drilled Shafts Founded in Hartford Shale
The axial and lateral load testing of three, 30 inch (76cm) diameter, permanently cased drilled shafts is analyzed herein. The prototype shafts were founded in (or on) Hartford Shale bedrock,...

Side Resistance of Drilled Shafts in the Denver and Pierre Formations
Results of load tests on drilled shaft foundations in Upper Cretaceous shales are described and evaluated. Three load tests were conducted on shafts in the Denver Formation, in Denver,...

Rocky Mountain Project Conceptual Design of Upper Reservoir
The 9300 acre-foot upper reservoir for the Rocky Mountain Project will be formed by an 80-ft high ring dam with a crest length of 12,800 feet. Sandstone and shale of the Pottsville formation...

Soil Moisture Measurements in Oil Shale Waste Material Using a Neutron Probe and Time Domain Reflectometry
Five large scale lysimeters (7.3 × 3.0 × 3.0 m deep) have been constructed to collect information and data on hydrological factors which affect the movement of water through a large scale...

Rock Excavations in Downtown Toronto
The geology of Toronto area is somewhat complex due to the series of advances and retreats of the glaciers. The overburden deposits consist of materials laid down during the Wisconsinan...

Conditional Simulation of the Wilmington Sand-Shale Sequence, Los Angeles Basin
In shaly clastic reservoirs at a scale where vertical cross flow cannot be ignored the main source of heterogeneity is the apparent random geometry of the sand-shale sequence. That geometry...

Environmental Risk Assessment for a Future Oil Shale Industry in the Western U.S.

Abutment Seepage at Smithville Dam
After initial filling there was concern for the stability of Smithville Dam when higher than anticipated piezometric levels were experienced in the left abutment foundation. Concern heightened...
