Background:

More and more major infrastructural projects are being built in the western mountains and karst region with extremely complex geological conditions. China becomes one of the largest scale nations with most challenging projects in tunnel construction. In China, a large number of high-risk deep and long tunnel are being or to be built, where water inrush and mud gushing can easily occur during the construction. Due to extremely complex geological conditions and lack of effective theory and controlling technologies, water inrush and mud gushing are difficult to manage in practice. Therefore, to enhance safety, preserve construction investment and protect the regional ecological environment and maintain social stability during the construction of tunnels and underground engineering, there is a critical need to improve the understanding of the catastrophe mechanism and enhance forecast and prediction technologies. This will promote the development of disaster prevention and mitigation of major construction projects.

This workshop will be held in China during the 4th GeoChina 2016 Conference (held in Shandong on July 25-27, 2016). This workshop aims to share knowledge and lesson learned from various parts of the world for their researches on catastrophe mechanism and forecast controlling theory of water inrush and mud gushing in deep large tunnel.

Topics and Themes:

  1. Analytical methods for geological characterization of water inrush and mud gusing in tunneling;
  2. Advanced prediction methods and quantitative identification theory of water inrush and mud gusing in tunneling;
  3. Catastrophic evolution and instability mechanism of water inrush and mud gusing;
  4. Multivariate information characteristics and comprehensive prediction theory of water inrush and mud gusing;
  5. Risk evaluation and early warning theory of water inrush and mud gusing;
  6. Control on disaster of water inrush and mud gusing;
  7. Case Studies
