Settlement on Peat - Lower Mainland by C. Brawner

Settlement on Peat - Lower Mainland by C. Brawner

Settlement on Peat - Lower Mainland by C. Brawner

(OP)
Dear all,

I am looking for a paper written Chuck Brawner.  The topic of the paper is something like "Embankment Settlement on Peat - Lower Mainland" The site was somewhere on Hwy 1 near Port Mann Bridge.  I tried looking up the UBC Library site, E Journal, that kind of thing...no luck

So I would greatly appreciate if any one could give me some idea where I can find this article.

Thankx

Why don't you just call Chuck directly??  If you don't know him, someone in your firm might.  He's a great guy and I am sure that he would help out.  There were major peat studies in Burnaby during the building of the TransCanada Highway through there.  Geocon did a lot of the work along with Chuck.  Another name, though I am not sure of his present co-ordinates, is Mike Hoy.  They used hogfuel embankments - I've seen a lot of the consolidation test stuff but do not have access at present (or future either).  Fenco did a big study for City of Burnaby on Construction in the Burnaby Lake Plains - back in early 1960s.  Just some other info you might want to look into.  But, try Chuck first.

Chuck's office is  604 904-6717 he has a new autobiography "50 years around the world" and I'm sure he would be happy to find the paper for you or would answer your questions directly.

cheers.

jdmm - how to get his auto???  I first ran into Chuck at the Syncrude Geotechnical Review Board - he's a good friend of my mentor.  Also, I had the pleasure of sitting in one of his courses at UBC - a real class guy!

I have a brochure at the office but you might want to contact him by e-mail directly.  I will try to get an e-mail address for you tommorow if I can.

jmdd - check out a few of my posts - I gave my email address (shouldn't have!).  Send it there rather than put it out for all.  Thanks.  I worked in VCR for 1981-1988.  Worked on Nanaimo to Joyce Skytrain construction.
