Brooks Aqueduct and the Greenhill Mine Tipple building are both reinforced concrete structures built over 100 years ago. As both are historic sites, there is a desire to conserve them while they suffer from similar problems. These have developed despite very different owners and construction standards. The similarities and differences will be discussed against current knowledge. Focus will then shift to some masonry buildings in Calgary and the problems with their conservation.
Dr. Nigel Shrive, P.Eng
The presentation will be given by Nigel Shrive. Nigel has retired from being a Professor in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Calgary after some 45 years, serving two five-year terms as head of the Department and teaching structures and materials. In recent years he introduced two new graduate courses on the conservation of historic structures for structural engineers, being the first such courses in North America.
