The February edition of the OGG’s lunch presentations is a presentation by Mike Pockoski on the One Mile House Project in Saint John and it takes place on Wednesday February 9th at 11:45 am at the Hellenic Community Centre. An abstract and more details are found below.
Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining walls, concrete retaining walls, and earthen embankments impart high shearing stress in the underlying soil. When constructed over weak foundation soil, slope instability and bearing capacity failures can occur. Rammed Aggregate Pier® (RAP) elements were used on the One Mile House project in Saint John, New Brunswick to increase factor of safety against global instability and bearing capacity failure and to control settlement magnitude and reduce the time required for settlement to occur.
