Prof. Tang is the editorial board member of the “International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences”. His group developed the microscale Rock Mechanics Experiment (micro-RME) system and AiFrac-TOUGH software, in order to understand and control the rock fracturing with Hydraulic-Mechanical-Thermal coupling process. This micro-RME system, including nanoindentation and atomic force microscope, is able to investigate the mechanical property of rock-forming minerals and micro-cracking, which is especially useful to test the filling in fractures and arbitrarily-shaped meteorites. Meanwhile, this AiFrac-TOUGH software is able to simulate three-dimensional fracturing at multiscale, such as fracking in field work. His achievement contributes to the smarter unconventional petroleum production, thermal energy exploitation and future space mining.
