Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education on Safe Mining of Deep Metal Mines
The Key Laboratory of Ministry of Education on Safe Mining of Deep Metal Mines at Northeastern University was approved by the Ministry of Education for construction in December 2011, and the inspection and acceptance were successfully completed in November 2016. Northeastern University’s mining engineering discipline that is affiliated to the laboratory is the first batch of “211 Project” and “985 Project” key disciplines in the country. The key laboratory is oriented to major national strategies and serves local economic development. It conducts theoretical research, technology research and development, and research on safety, efficiency, and environmental issues in deep engineering construction, deep metal mines, deep geothermal energy development, oil and gas resources exploitation, and underground space development and utilization. Scientific and technological services to form a theoretical system and technology research and development platform for deep engineering construction and deep resource extraction based on deep geology as the background, deep rock mass mechanics as the basis, and computer and information science as the means to establish China's deep engineering construction and deep resource extraction fields Design guidelines to improve the overall research level in the field of deep resource development.
Since the establishment of the key laboratory, it has always adhered to independent innovation, facing the frontiers of science and technology in the world, facing the main battlefield of the economy, and facing major national needs. The dean of the Key Laboratory is Professor Feng Xia-ting who is a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the chairman of International Federal Association of Geological Engineering, and the chairman of Chinese Society of Rock Mechanics and Engineering. The Key Laboratory has an academician of the American Academy of Engineering, an academician of the Norwegian Academy of Engineering, an Academician of the European Academy of Science, and an outstanding research team consisting of young and middle-aged teachers. There are 51 researchers in the laboratory, including 17 professors, 14 associate professors, 20 lecturers and engineers, including 1 member of the Disciplinary Evaluation Group of the Degree Committee of the State Council, 3 professors specially invited by the Changjiang Scholars, and 3 winners of the National Outstanding Youth Fund. Of them, 2 winners of the National Excellent Youth Fund, and 6 outstanding talents of the New Century from the Ministry of Education. At present, the laboratory has five research directions, two teaching teams, and an engineering research center. They are rock mechanics and safety in deep engineering, safe and efficient mining of deep metal mines, efficient geothermal mining and disaster control, and efficient oil and gas resources in deep layers. Mining, oil and gas storage and underground space development and utilization, and deep rock mechanics teaching team and deep metal mining teaching team, as well as intelligent deep engineering research center.
The laboratory has superior experimental equipment and experimental conditions. It has independently developed a true triaxial stress-strain full-process experimental system for high pressure hard rocks, a true triaxial test system for hard rocks, a true triaxial creep shear test system for high pressure rocks, and high temperature and high-pressure rocks. True triaxial failure process and seepage coupling test system, rock micro-loading multi-axial test system, dense rock gas adsorption and permeability test system under true tri-directional stress, hard rock tri-axial rheological test system, multi-field coupled rock tri-axial rheology System, multi-field coupling test system for deep buried unconventional natural gas reservoir rock, experimental system for rock failure process under high pressure microwave, test system for electric blasting rock process, etc. A series of deep rock mechanics test platforms and unconventional geomechanical tests are built. Platform, on-site in-situ comprehensive monitoring platform, similar material simulation system platform in mining process, deep mining dynamic control visualization platform, electric explosion comprehensive experimental system platform, etc. Has undertaken more than 100 national 973, 863, key research and development plans (projects), outstanding young people's science fund, key projects of the National Natural Science Foundation and major international cooperation projects, national science and technology support projects and enterprise cooperation projects, etc. Awarded 5 awards, published more than 10 monographs, published more than 500 academic papers, obtained more than 80 national invention patents, 6 international patents, and 5 results have been implemented; related research in the United States, Canada, Britain, France, Australia and other countries Institutions and universities have established good cooperative relations.
In November 2016, it was approved by the Ministry of Education and the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs 111 plan "Base for Deep Engineering Rock Mass Mechanics and Safety Innovation and Introducing Intelligence" to attract and gather dozens of world-class experts and scholars (including 5 foreign academicians) and laboratories Carry out long-term cooperative research, and establish international cooperation platforms such as the International Research Center for Deeper Mining in China, the International Research Center for Unconventional Geological Bodies, and the China-France Multi-Field and Multi-Scale International Cooperation Joint Laboratory, to further promote and enhance the internationalization of key laboratory.
The key laboratory has always attached importance to cultural construction and personnel training, actively carried out curriculum ideological and political education, has a national party building model party branch of the Ministry of Education, and advanced grass-roots party organizations in Liaoning Province. The key laboratory also actively explores the reform of the undergraduate and graduate talent training mechanism, presides over education reform projects such as the New Engineering Department of the Ministry of Education, and the undergraduate or graduate students trained receive a number of major competition awards or honors at all levels.
