About myself

Before joining the Department in 2015, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from  Beijing University of Technology. My undergraduate major is Geotechnical Engineering and have some experience of participating in subway station design.

Research Project

My PhD research focus on the dynamic analysis of soil. The analysis is conducted by self-coded program based on Mesh-free methods. Mesh-free is a technique regarded as superior to conventional numerical methods and their main difference is the absence of mesh (sometimes called grid). To be more specific, in this program Discrete Element Method(DEM) and Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic(SPH) are applied respectively to model soil particles and water particles. The aim of my research is to explore the efficiency of this combination in the application of dynamic analysis.
