Brief Introduction of Professor Shilang Xu
Shilang Xu is an expert in Structural Engineering and a professor of Zhejiang University. He was born in Zhashui County, Shaanxi Province.
Professor Xu graduated from Northwest A&F University with a major in Water Conservancy Engineering in 1977. In 1982 and 1988, he successively obtained the master's degree of Marine Engineering and the doctor's degree of Structural Engineering from Dalian University of Technology.
Professor Xu was jointly awarded the honorary title of "China's Outstanding Doctoral Degree Recipient" by the State Education Commission and the Academic Degrees Committee of the State Council. In 2021, Professor Xu was successfully elected as an academician of the CAS Member.
Professor Xu mainly engages in research on structures and materials of high-performance concrete. He founded the Double-K Fracture Theory of concrete with significant international influence, proposed safety evaluation criteria for structural integrity of concrete, established a systematic theory and testing technology system for concrete crack safety analysis, and led the development of the international standard "Test Method for Determining Double-K Criteria for Concrete Crack Expansion Using Wedge Splitting Test and Three Point Bending Beam Test".
The Double-K Fracture Theory has been successfully applied to the Wujiang Dongfeng Concrete High Arch Dam, Wujiang Suofengying Gravity Dam, the second and third phases of the Yangtze Three Gorges Dam, and the Danjiangkou Dam Heightening Project of the Middle Route of the South to North Water Transfer, providing important technical support for the safe operation of major water conservancy and hydropower projects.
Professor Xu has developed high toughness concrete and composite crack control structures, providing technical support for the safe service of infrastructure, and achieving significant improvement in concrete crack resistance and durability. The invented high toughness concrete has been successfully applied to 15 major projects, including Shanghai Wusong Military Port, Zhejiang Xinling Tunnel, Zhoushan Yushan Cross Sea Bridge, and Hangzhou Qiushi Viaduct and so on.
Professor Xu won the second prize of the the State Natural Science Award, the second prize of the the State Technological Innovation Award, the third prize of the National Science and Technology Progress Award, and four provincial and ministerial natural awards and the first prize of the invention award.
