Research direction:
Deformation and failure timeliness of engineering rock mass

Based on the academic idea of rock mass structure controlling theory, our research extends to the behavior of deep-buried rock mass and rock mass's long-time-scale effect using techniques such as geophysical exploration and multi-parameter monitoring. For the theoretical study on the structural effect, the emphasis is put on the timeliness of rock mass structure (long-term strength and
rheological parameters) and the control mechanism for deep-buried rock mass.
Aimed at the rapid construction requirement for new national major projects, our research group carries out a series of studies on fine engineering geological exploration, field monitoring, laboratory analysis and test, and disaster warning to investigate the failure process of engineering geologic body, break outs monitoring, moderate reconstruction and reasonable protection in the field of shale gas, ancient rock engineering and large-scale scientific facility. Our research emphasis includes the geological structure model, long-term strength theory and failure process (timeliness) model.
