2018 is a memorable year. Forty years ago, in 1978, Mr. Shi Genhua began his work in China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research. In the same year, he published the article of A geometric method for stability analysis of discontinuous rocks and put forward the theory of block body. Thirty years ago, in 1988, Mr. Shi completed his doctoral thesis and systematically put forward the method of discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA). 2018 is the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research. At the same time, it’s Mr. Shi Genhua's 80th birthday. To commemorate the year with special significance, we will be honored to hold the 14th ICADD, which is also Mr. Shi Genhua's 80th birthday celebration, at The Beijing Conference Center on October 26-28, 2018. 


The theme of this conference is to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the publication of block theory. It aims to promote the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience of discontinuous numerical analysis methods, as well as the latest advance in this field. Topics of this conference include key block theory and its engineering application, discontinuous deformation analysis method, numerical manifold method and other discontinuous numerical methods.

ATTENTION: The conference will be in Chinese and English. Simultaneous translation from Chinese to English will be provided.
