Research Area:
Geotechnical Engineering/ Super high-rise structure

Research Experience:
Introduced the technique of “high-pressure grouting reinforcement of slope soil with closed row anchor pipe” creatively into the foundation pit supporting, which successfully solved the problem of the stability of the long cantilever pile supporting caused by the foundation of the existing building adjacent to the foundation pit.

Organized the construction of 650 mm-long (46 m-deep) underground diaphragm wall. The optimized design of the four reinforced concrete inner support system was carried out to ensure the progress of the project by adding steel shear-resistant keys to the underground diaphragm wall, leaving counter-pressure soil platforms at the bottom of the trenches, arranging the inclined bracing on the base plate, and adopting reinforced cushions to replace the steel support.

Based on the advanced concept of “Center Island Method”, a super large (79600 m2) and ultra-deep foundation pit in soft soil area was designed by fully utilizing the FLAC and other large-scale numerical simulation analysis tools, which provided conditions for the owners to adjust their architectural layout.

The “high-strength concrete (C100) kilometer pumping” and “Beidou satellite high-precision measurement” technologies, applied to 600 m super high “Ping’an Financial Center”, have been recognized by academicians as “international leading level”. The other six key technologies have reached the "internationally advanced level". This project created 15 national and world records.
