Numerical Laboratory
of Rock Mechanics

The team was established in 2015 and belongs to the State Key Laboratory of Hydraulic Engineering Simulation and Safety, Tianjin University. With rock mechanics as the background, the team developed Lattice Spring Model discrete numerical calculation method, aiming to carry out original basic research and high-tech application basic research for the scientific and technological problems encountered in the high-standard and high-quality construction and long-term safe operation of major water conservancy projects. The team has always adhered to independent research and development and technological innovation, and developed NumericalBox3D, an internationally leading real fracture process analysis system, including DLSM and 4D-LSM methods. At the same time, the team vigorously promotes academic exchanges and cooperation at home and abroad, and strengthens talent team construction and training.
At present, there are 1 postdoctoral fellow, 8 doctoral candidates and 6 master candidates in the team. We have trained 10 master graduates, two of whom have been recommended to further their studies abroad.
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
The future is terrible, how do you know it's not now?

博士后 2020
Major Education: PhD, Rock Mechanics, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, 2010
Master, Bridge and Tunnel Engineering, China University of Mining and Technology, China, 2007
B.S., Structural Engineering, China University of Mining and Technology, China, 2004
The main research areas include: Rock dynamics, multiscale methods and high performance computing. He is committed to the research of numerical calculation methods of rock dynamics, multi-scale coupling, fluid-structure coupling, and high performance computing. He has established a new discrete numerical calculation model DLSM and a discrete numerical calculation model 4D-LSM which considers the interaction of four-dimensional space.
