Projects per year
Xun Xi is a research associate in civil and environmental engineering department. His research interests focus on the fracture in quasi-brittle materials (e.g., concrete and rock) for the structure durability and subsurface engineering.
Xun joined Shangtong's group in 2019 for the project "Smart pumping for Subsurface Engineering (Prosperity Partnership)" funded by EPSRC. They are developing numerical methods to model the response of rock under cyclic pulsating loads.
Xun received his PhD degree in civil engineering with the topic "Concrete cover cracking induced by non-uniform corrosion of reinforcement" which was finished in University of Strathclyde (2016-2018) and University of Science and Technology Beijing (2013-2019).
