Unsaturated soil mechanics

A large portion of the world population is found in the arid regions of the world where the groundwater table is deep. The drier climatic regions have become increasingly aware of the uniqueness of their regional soil mechanics problems. In recent years, there has also been a shift in emphasis in the developed regions from the behavior of engineered structures to the impacts of developments on the natural world. There has been an ongoing desire to expand the science dealing with soil mechanics such that it will embrace the behavior of unsaturated soils.

  The development of a rational approach to the behavior of unsaturated soils can be traced to three main events.

u      In arid countries around the world there have been problems associated with volume changes of unsaturated soils in response to changes in the water content of the soil, for example, expansive soils;

u      There is an increasing concern for the environment protection in developed countries. The migration of chemicals is superimposed on the conductive movement within the water phase. Many of this kind of process occurred at the upper portion of the profile which should be treated as unsaturated soils;

u      The number of the software using in geotechnical engineering is always increasing. However, to couple the unsaturated soil mechanics with flow mechanics is still a problem in those kinds of software.

Development and Utilization of Urban Underground Space

  The underground space is the space below the surface in urban planning. The development and utilization of underground space can improve the ground environment, develop the underground traffic and reduce air pollution. It can relieve the contradiction between the shortage of urban land resources and the rapid urban development to realize the sustainable development. With the continued rapid growth of our national economy and the improvement of urbanization in recent years, the development and utilization of urban underground space has become a hot topic in the field of geotechnical engineering.

u    Environmental effect of shielding in Wuxi subway projects (Wuxi Rail- Transit project

u    Optimization of designing loading and models in shield tunneling lining design(Wuxi Rail- Transit project

 

In-Situ Soil Testing

The in-situ test techniques are the effective methods to obtain information of soil stratum. All kinds of in-situ test developed towards muti-functional apparatus, which obtain information in a term test. For instance, it can measure the parameter of the pore pressure, temperature, wave velocity, lateral stress, resistivity and radioactivity in the top of CPT. In order to ensure the construction quality rapidly, exactly and continuously, the TDR test was developed, which can get the water content and dry density. A series of measure apparatus were developed to estimate the quality of the big diameter cast-in-place and the pile foundation under the building internationally, for example the pore probing, the concrete penetrometer and the thermal exchange pile.

     The lab’s aim is to grasp the in-situ test technical direction internationally and organize a workshop to study the in-situ test techniques, which will make be important base fulcrum of geotechnical engineering inland and be advanced overseas.

Brief Introduction of Discipline (within 400 words)

Geotechnical Engineering is a second-class discipline of Civil Engineering, under the leadership of Professor Songyu Liu. It has enrolled and nurtured the graduate students to award the master degree and doctorate degree since 1981 and 2000 separately. At that time, the famous expert of geotechnical engineering Professor Nianci Tang dedicated all his life to lay a solid foundation for the potential development of doctoral program. Afterward in 2007, geotechnical engineering had been included in the Jiangsu provincial key disciplines. Following with the development of national infrastructures, the discipline has formed its distinct research field and made a great achievement in pile dynamics, special ground improvement and assessment, offshore geotechnical engineering, geoenvironmental geotechnology, and surveying of underground structure field etc. Nine projects have been awarded the Advancement Prize of Science and Technology by the various ministries and provincial governments. Now, the discipline is well equipped with all types of laboratory facilities as GDS triaxial unsaturated soil testing system, GDS cyclic and static triaxial soil testing system, triaxial rheometer, high-precision mercury porosimeter, laser particle analyzer, large scale modeling system and other ordinary test apparatus, which could provide technical support for geotechnical testing related to teaching and research. Recently, the discipline is undertaking a number of import projects including innovative technology for ground improvement, mechanics of special soils, contaminated soils remediation, in-situ measurements etc. sponsored by Nation Science Foundation or National 863 Program. Meanwhile, other projects on highway and water conservancy, large-scale bridge pile foundation engineering, and underground structure are also undertaking. The annual research funds is over 10 million, and more than 60 papers are published on SCI, EI, ISTP and core journals per year on average.
