Researcher Hou Yujing Come to SKLGP to Give Academic Lectures


Invited by Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory of SKLGP, Three committee members(Only three members in China.):Senior engineer Cai Zhengyin, senior engineer Hou Yujing and Professor Ma Xianfeng  gave academic lectures on special topics in conference room 211. They are members of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, Physical Modelling in Geotechnics - TC104ISSMGE, TC104, China panel. On November 18th morning, Hou Yujing, a researcher in China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research Institute of Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory, gave an academic lecture titled "The Development of Geotechnical Centrifuge Status and Outlook".


In the report, Researcher Hou Yujing made a detailed introduction in following aspects: the characteristics and development of geotechnical centrifuge, major application fields, the domestic and foreign development situation, the application of IWHR centrifuge, the large proposed centrifuge and the application prospect of geotechnical centrifuge. Firstly, Hou introduced the development of the centrifuge: The centrifuge was first put forward in 1869 and used in geotechnical engineering in the last century 1930’s. Secondly, he interpreted the classification and testing principle of the centrifuge: It is mainly used to simulate the deformation and stability of engineering prototype with complex structure; centrifuge has prominent advantages in consolidation, earthquake and liquefaction, excavation of deep foundation pit, blasting simulation, and improves the research level of the basic theory of geotechnical engineering. And then Hou introduced some domestic and international advanced geotechnical centrifuges and analyzed the advantages and disadvantages. At the end of the report, researcher Hou Yujing introduced the large proposed geotechnical centrifuge laboratory and experimental research platform.


At the end of the report, Professor Ju Nengpan and associate professors Han Wenxi as well as the present graduate students had having exchanges and discussion with Researcher Hou.


Hou Yujing is the deputy chief engineer of China Water Conservancy and Hydropower Research Institute of Rock and Soil, a Standing Committee member of soil testing committee of China Institution of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering-China Civil Engineering Society, the deputy director of the soil and engineering centrifuge committee of China Water Conservancy Institute of Geotechnical Mechanics, a member of International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, Geotechnical Simulation Technological Committee(ISSMGE, TC104). In 1984, Hou Yujing graduated in Water Conservancy from the Tsinghua University. Then he completed the master's and doctoral study in Chinese water conservancy and Hydropower Research Institute. Finally, he completed the post doctoral research at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Hou is the chief editor of Regulations for Geotechnical Centrifuge Test . He published 3 monographs and more than 40 academic papers.
