The slope and underground engineering researchinstitute carries out such scientific research as slope stability analysis,slope reinforcement, pressure control of underground chamber group, mining support,flood control. The research institute consists of 3 professors, 5 associateprofessors, 30 candidates of master & doctor. With comprehensivegeotechnical engineering laboratory, soil & rock mechanics tests are made onthe indoor or on site. The purchase of a large of nonlinear analysis software,such as 3D –σ, 3D – FLAC, UDEC analysis software, which can carry out undergroundpressure control analysis of complex groups of chambers, analysis and disposalof slope stability. The Institute has completed more than 20 projects about analysisand treatment of slope stability, over 30 projects about underground pressurecontrol of metal mine, more than 10 projects about supporting soft broken rocktunnel, over 10 projects about grouting, achieved good results, won theprovincial and ministerial level scientific and technological progress awardincluding 2 items of first prize, 2 items of second prize and 6 items of thirdprize, published more than 50 papers and 2 monographs, trained over 40 masterstudents and 6 doctoral students.
