Professor/Senior Engineer, Chief Engineer and Civil Structure Engineer of Hubei Province Investigation and Design Institute for Water Resources & Hydropower；
Deputy Secretary General of ICFRD, Deputy Editor in chief of CFRD WORLD
Graduated from Tsinghua University in Department of Water Conservancy
Studied geology in Wuhan Institute of Water Conservancy and Hydropower in 1986~1988；
Created a new design method “ plinth + anti-seepage plate”, with which, Xiaoxikou CFRD on strong weathered foundation was constructed successfully at Xiaoxikou Jiansi County , Hubei Province , China, resolving the seepage stability problem in the CFRD construction both in soft bedrock and in high CFRDs.” It widens the field for CFRD construction” as stated in the Chinese Design Code SL228-98. Mr. Barry Cooke concluded it as the plinth model “ 4+x ”.
Invited as consultant expert by China Society for Hydropower Engineering CFRD Commission on Jan. 18, 2000
Introduced the construction of China’s CFRD to foreign dam experts as the chief engineer of CFRD Commission in 2005.
Published more than 40 papers by now.
The main contributions to world CFRD construction are as follows:
1) CFRD WORLD, Journal of ICFRD, quarterly
2) Book “CFRD Construction of 20 Years in China ” ( Chinese and English )
3) Magazines “ Key Technologies for High CFRDs” (English)
1) Yunlonghe RCC double-curvature arch dam (135m)
2) Daxia RCC gravity dam (98m)
3) Bajiaohe CFRD (115m)
4) Sanbanxi CFRD (186m)
The filling material was awarded a national second prize of scientific and technological achievements
5) Tianshengqiao I CFRD (178m)
6) Gudongkou gravel CFRD (126m)
7) Lizhou arch dam (135m) The dam height was lowered to 125m high after being consulted. cut down project investment at 10 million RMB
8) Kajiwa CFRD (178m)
9) Yilisimutasi CFRD, Xinjiang, China (115m). Its cofferdam and dam becomes one. the excavation depth was reduced by 10 m and the construction period was shortened by 1 year.
10) Hekou CFRD with a deep alluvium (126m)
Its alluvium is 30m in depth with a monolayer thick of 12m of mud-filled layer. The project was awarded a first prize of national science and technology achievement award.
11) Yaojiaping CFRD (178m)
The project layout and dam filling material were modified after being consulted, cutting down investment at 700 million RMB.
1) Laodukou CFRD with a deep overburden
Dam height is 96.60m with 20.58m of wall depth and 80cm of wall thickness.
2) Baishahe CFRD with soft rock
Dam height is 108m with a saturated compressive strength of only by 17MPa of the dam material.
3) Doulingzi gravel CFRD (88m)
4) Eping CFRD (124m)
5) Xiaoxikou CFRD on strong weathered base (70m)
6) Hongwawu CFRD with crest spillway (48m)
7) Hongyan III RCC double-curvature arch dam (98m)
