Dr Junlong Shang

  • Lecturer (Infrastructure & Environment)

Biography

I am Lecturer in Engineering Geology and Geotechnics in the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. I am a member of the Geotechnics Group at the Infrastructure and Environment Division, also a member of the Energy and Sustainability Research Group at the Division of Systems, Power and Energy.

My research centres on rock mechanics for underground space (e.g., tunnels, caverns) and earth resources (e.g., minerals, geothermal energy), combining laboratory, modelling, and field approaches. I have established a proven track record in mechanics of rocks and fractures, and multiphysics coupled modelling.

I am a recipient of the prestigious ISRM Rocha Medal (awarded to one candidate annually since 1982). I currently serve as a Future Leader of the American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA). I am a Scientific Editor for Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (Elsevier, IF=4.3, Q1) and an Editorial Board Member of Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (Springer, IF=6.7, Q1).

Teaching

ENG2080 Geology and Surveying for Civil Engineers

This course provides an introduction to practical geology for civil engineers, emphasising: (i) identification of rocks, soils and associated landforms; (ii) appreciation of the occurrence and movement of groundwater; (iii) basic appraisal of geohazards relevant to engineering practice; (iv) applications of geology in civil engineering projects. It also introduces the topic of surveying and includes a series of practical sessions which allow students to familiarise themselves with surveying equipment.

ENG4183 Transportation Engineering

This course will provide students with state-of-the-art knowledge of design principles and skills to create inclusive, efficient, and multi-modal transport networks in the urban environment. Students will learn from international examples applied to Scottish contexts about how cities can plan their networks to enable people to use sustainable and active transport choices. Students will learn the principles of planning traffic circulation, light rail networks, and active travel networks in the urban environment. The students will also undergo a detailed design coursework, redesigning a key junction in Glasgow to enable multi-modal flow while enhancing safety of citizens.
