New Project: 3D cracking behavior of rocks under true triaxial stress conditions: Mechanistic modeling and investigations

Our research project entitled "3D cracking behavior of rocks under true triaxial stress conditions: Mechanistic modeling and investigations" has been approved for a General Research Fund of the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong. In this project, we team up with two renowned scholars in experimental rock mechanics – Dr. Louis N.Y. Wong of the HKU Earth Sciences Department, and Prof. Teng-fong Wong of the CUHK Earth System Science Programme.
