RDC Invests $1.7 Million In Academic-led R&D In Newfoundland And Labrador

CollaborativeR&D CollaborativeR&D increases research and development (R&D) partnerships and collaboration between academia and industry in areas relevant to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy.

Compressive Ice Failure Mechanics, $300,000 from RDC Dr. Ian Jordaan, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University and Centre for Arctic Research and Development, C-CORE One of the areas that is important in further exploration of Arctic and sub-Arctic regions is the safe, yet economic, design of vertical-walled offshore structures and ships for the ice conditions present in these regions. Understanding ice compressive failure behaviour and the associated mechanics are critical in modeling ice loads and risk. While the mechanics of ice crushing are complex, significant progress has been made in understanding the processes involved and simplifying key aspects of failure behavior.  This project seeks to expand this research to investigate fundamental issues, such as the behaviour of high pressure zones and processes that limit ice failure pressures, which are of great importance for design. Funding from RDC leverages $300,000 from Statoil and $240,000 from C-CORE.

GeoEXPLORE GeoEXPLORE is a three-year directed research program, intended to enhance geoscience R&D capacity, collaboration, and industry innovation in support of mineral and petroleum exploration and development in Newfoundland and Labrador.

North Atlantic Plate Reconstruction Project, $30,000 from RDC Dr. Jeremy Hall, Department of Earth Sciences, Faculty of Science, Memorial University This project will investigate how the Jeanne d'Arc Basin has evolved over time in three dimensions.  The results will be used to develop a regional model of plate edge deformation over time that can be used for future oil projects. A graduate student, Caroline McIlroy, has been identified as a member of the core research team and will be directly involved in the comparative study of the Jeanne d'Arc Basin. The team will make a regional interpretation of faults across the basin and estimate fault displacements to arrive at the total extension through the crust. Ms. McIlroy will conduct a detailed 3D seismic study of fault interactions to establish how faults with different orientations move individually to produce strain. The results will be fed into plate deformation modelling software. Funding from RDC leverages $20,000 from Husky Energy and $16,500 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada's Discovery Grant.
