About The Event
Ryan is a senior geotechnical engineer with twenty years’ experience in geotechnical investigation, design and management of civil engineering projects, including drainage design, geotechnical slope stability design and condition assessments of geotechnical structures. He has focused his work on slope stability remediation across western Canada and expanded into all aspects of geotechnical engineering that affect linear infrastructure, Among his recent projects are: slope stability and erosion protection designs for SaskPower at Boundary Dam, Estevan Generating Station, Poplar River Power Station and Athabasca Power System, and Wascana Creek Shoreline Rehabilitation near the RCMP training academy. In addition to routinely helping Canadian Pacific with subgrade and drainage issues across western Canada and northern US, Ryan was also heavily involved in the restoration of track service after significant flood events near Minot and Estevan in 2010/2011, Bow River flooding in Calgary in 2013, near Rocanville and near Craven in 2014.
Ryan and Allen Kelly co-authored a conference paper describing the track outages near Kenmare, North Dakota during the Souris River flooding in 2010 and received an award for Best Case Study at CGS 2014. This is the focus of today’s talk.
