CGSE Researcher Dr Shanyong Wang Awarded Future Fellowship

Dr Shanyong Wang won a successful bid for a Future Fellowship with a total value of $761,579 over 4 years.

This project aims to investigate the fundamentals of fracture-controlled compensation grouting in various types of soil, so as to optimise the compensation efficiency and to minimise the risk of collapse of nearby structures. This will result in the minimisation of ground movements induced by underground excavations, which pose a major threat to existing infrastructure and communities worldwide. Small-scale laboratory experiments, centrifuge tests and numerical analyses will be conducted to develop an effective and economical grouting method that will provide a valuable design tool for engineers.
