CSA Engineering Research Database

The CSA Engineering Research Database covers the international serial and non-serial literature pertaining to civil, earthquake, environmental, mechanical, and transportation engineering including their complementary fields of forensic engineering, management and marketing of engineering services, engineering education, theoretical mechanics and dynamics, and mathematics/computation. Content includes basic and applied research, design, construction, technological and engineering aspects of air and water quality, environmental safety, energy production and developments in new technologies.

Sources covered include over 3,500 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Subfiles that make up the CSA Engineering Research Database can be searched separately.

The subfiles are:

  • ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering
  • CSA / ASCE Civil Engineering Abstracts
  • Environmental Engineering Abstracts
  • Earthquake Engineering Abstracts
  • Mechanical & Transportation Engineering Abstracts

  • Deep Indexing

    ProQuest Deep Indexing: Engineering supplements the Engineering Research Database and related files with access to deep indexing for tables, figures, graphs, charts and other illustrations from the scholarly research and technical literature for selected records. Records from the database appear with searches of the Engineering Research Database and related databases to provide an additional path for discovery.

    For additional information, please see the ProQuest Deep Indexing: Engineering factsheet.

      AB: Abstract
      The opportunity to examine the internal characteristics of two waste rock piles through their full depth arose during the rehabilitation activities at two mines sites. Waste rock dumps at both sites were excavated and removed to open pits for permanent closure. The sites are located within climatic and geologic regimes that offer a striking contrast. The purpose of the study was to examine the internal structure of the waste rock dumps and obtain observations with respect to structure, geochemistry, fluid flow pathways, weathering and other characteristics that may aid our understanding of the long-term behaviour of suiphide bearing waste rock systems. The research program was sponsored and directed by the International Network for Acid Prevention (INAP), together with Rio Tinto Ltd., Inco Ltd., Placer Dome Inc., EGi (Environmental Geochemistry International Pty Limited, Sydney, Australia), R & D Start (Graduate Program, Australia), and NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada). The research activities were conducted jointly between the Department of Mining and Mineral Process Engineering at the University of British Columbia, Canada, the Department of Civil Engineering at The University of Queensland, Australia, and EGi. This paper describes the field characterization program that was implemented at the sites, highlights the geochemical and physical laboratory testing program, and presents the results of numerical modelling undertaken to describe the flow system within the two waste rock dumps. The specific details of the investigations summarized here are described by Fines et al. (2003) and Tran et al. (2003).
