  • Research on consolidation wave in grouted rock bolt structure system 

    Zhang, Changsuo, Yi Li, and Steve Zou. 2009. "Research on consolidation wave in grouted rock bolt structure system." Yanshilixue Yu Gongcheng Xuebao/Chinese Journal of Rock Mechanics and Engineering 28: 3604-3608.
    Theoretical analysis, numerical simulation and experimental testing are used to study the velocity of consolidation wave in grouted rock bolt with different anchoring qualities. Fresh concrete with different ages is used ...
  • Damage evolution of ductile material under impact loading 

    Zhang, Changsuo, Steve Zou, and Baoping Zhang. 2006. "Damage evolution of ductile material under impact loading." Mechanics Research Communications 33(1): 26-34.
    Nucleation, growth and coalescence of micro-voids result in the fracture of materials. Most mathematical models neglect nucleation and introduce initial damage, assuming it as a material constant. However, the original ...
  • Study on wave propagation characteristics of rock bolt grouted structure 

    Zhang, Shi-Ping, Chang-Suo Zhang, Cheng Wang, and Steve Zou. 2007. "Study on wave propagation characteristics of rock bolt grouted structure." Yantu Lixue/Rock and Soil Mechanics 28(12): 2570-2573+2578.
    Numerical simulation and experimental testing are used to research the wave propagation characteristics and the forming procedure of interfacial wave in grouted rock bolt during embedded concrete curing. Both show the wave ...
  • Strengthening of solidified dilute tailings slurry 

    Zou, D. H. (S, and L. P. Li. 1999. "Strengthening of solidified dilute tailings slurry." Journal of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Engineering 125(1): 11-15.
    Tailings produced during mineral processing contain up to 75% or more water and are pumped into settling ponds for disposal. They often become a pollution source due to acid generation. While tailings have been used in ...
  • Self-monitoring and repairing based on crack of concrete beam embedded with SMA 

    Di, Sheng-Kui, Hui Li, Yong-Feng Du, Steve Zou, et al. 2009. "Self-monitoring and repairing based on crack of concrete beam embedded with SMA." Jianzhu Cailiao Xuebao/Journal of Building Materials 12(1): 27-31.
    An experimental research on concrete beams embedded with pre-stretch Ni-Ti shape memory alloy (SMA) wires was presented during the martensite phase at room temperature, the relationship between resistance change rate of ...
  • Effects of blast induced vibrations on the fresh concrete lining of a shaft 

    Zhang, Changsuo, Feng Hu, and Steve Zou. 2005. "Effects of blast induced vibrations on the fresh concrete lining of a shaft." Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology 20(4): 356-361.
  • Self-monitoring and self-repairing of crack in concrete beam with constraint super-elastic SMA 

    Di, Sheng-Kui, Wei-Pan Hua, Sheng-Wei Ji, Hui Li, et al. 2010. "Self-monitoring and self-repairing of crack in concrete beam with constraint super-elastic SMA." Jianzhu Cailiao Xuebao/Journal of Building Materials 13(2): 237-242.
    Taken advantages of the characteristics of super-elasticity and restoring forces while the shape memory alloy(SMA) was excited, concrete model beams were established by embedding different pre-stretching length, different ...
