  • ASSESSMENT OF TWO THERMALLY TREATED DRILL MUD WASTES FOR LANDFILL CONTAINMENT APPLICATIONS 

    Carignan, M.P., Lake, C.B., and Menzies, T. 2007. Assessment of two thermally treated drill mud wastes for landfill containment applications, Waste Management and Research, Vol. 25(5): 394-401.
    Offshore oil and gas drilling operations generate significant amounts of drill mud waste, some of which is transported onshore for subsequent thermal treatment (i.e. via thermal remediation). This treatment process results ...
  • Diffusion and Sorption of VOCs Through Soil-Cement Materials 

    Goreham, V. and Lake, C.B. 2016. Diffusion and sorption of volatile organic compounds through soil-cement materials, Environmental Geotechnics, DOI: 10.1680/jenge.15.00010
    This paper presents a laboratory study that assesses the diffusive and sorptive parameters of three volatile organic compounds benzene, ethylbenzene, and trichloroethylene) though cured, monolithic, soil-cement materials. ...
  • Evaluating Impact Resonance Testing as a Tool for Predicting Hydraulic Conductivity and Strength Changes in Cement-Stabilized Soils 

    5. Jamshidi, R., Lake, C.B., and Barnes, C. 2015. Evaluating impact resonance testing as a tool for predicting hydraulic conductivity and strength changes in cement-stabilized soils, Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, 27(12): 04015051-1- 04015051-9, 10.1061/(ASCE)MT.1943-5533.0001318
    In this paper the impact resonance (IR) test method is used as a nondestructive tool to examine the curing progression, freeze/thaw (f/t) resistance, and healing potential of cement-stabilized soils. Resonant frequency ...
  • Hydraulic and strength performance of three cement-stabilized soils subjected to cycles of freezing and thawing 

    Jamshidi, R. and Lake, C.B. 2015. Hydraulic and strength performance of three cement-stabilized soils subjected to cycles of freezing and thawing, Canadian Geotechnical Journal, 52(3): 283-294, 10.1139/cgj-2014-0100.
    A total of 108 specimens were prepared to examine the hydraulic performance and strength performance of nine different cement-stabilized soils under unexposed and freeze–thaw exposed conditions. Specimens from each mix ...
  • Statistical Sample Size for Quality Control Programs of Cement-Based Solidification/Stabilization 

    Fenton, G.A, Liza, R., Lake, C.B., Menzies, T., Griffiths, D.V. 2015. Statistical sample size for quality control programs of cement-based solidification/stabilization, Canadian Geotechnical Journal, 52(10): 1620–1628, http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/pdf/10.1139/cgj-2013-0478.
    Sampling requirements for the quality control (QC) of cement-based solidification/stabilization (S/S) construction cells do not currently specify the sample size considering the accuracy of the estimated effective hydraulic ...
