Xuhai Tang
Professor at Wuhan University

Prof. Tang received his Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Science. His group developed advanced software of numerical modelling, named as AiFrac, and microscale rock mechanics experiment system, in order to understand the behavior of fractured geological media at difficult scales with thermal-hydraulic-mechanical (THM) processes.
