INVITATION

      Entering to the new century, Chinese government initiated “The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road” (B&R) project to strengthen the connections among the huge populations and the numerous economic entities located in Eurasia and Africa, employing the massive infrastructure investment and construction as the foundation of mass transportation. The complex geological and geometrical problems involved in B&R ask for higher standards in survey, design, and construction, which can only be achieved by extensive collaborations among the related countries and their outstanding scientists and engineers.
      The SXFRG is a series biennial forum that aims at the fundamental innovation of theory and technology in rock mechanics and engineering geology. The first Forum to be held on Saturday October 28 to Sunday October 29, 2017, will focus on “the Rock Mechanical and Engineering Geological problems for B&R”. The forum will be held in Shaoxing, China, which is located in ...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

        Rapid growth of economy and the accompanied infrastructure construction have significantly shaped the face of the world. Entering into the new century, Chinese government initiated “The Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st –Century Maritime Silk Road” (B&R) project to strengthen the connections among huge populations and numerous economic entities located in Eurasia and Africa through massive infrastructure investigation and construction as the foundation of mass transportation. While human beings are more frequently stricken by geological disasters induced by natural forces and engineering activities, the complex geological and geometrical problems involved in B&R ask for higher standards in survey, design, and construction that can only be achieved by extensive collaborations among related countries and their outstanding scientists and engineers.       
        Researchers worldwide with their diligence and wisdom, their interests and passions, have already obtained some remarkable achievements in the related practices. In order to communicate and diffuse those achievements more rapidly and widely, work together to find out more efficient solutions to international challenges, it is really necessary to offer a stage to thoroughly discuss the outstanding issues involved in rock mechanics and engineering geology. Such communications and the common sense achieved would lead us to find a better way to face the even greater challenges in the rest of this century. This is the very purpose of this forum.
