The 2nd International Conference on Advances in Civil and Ecological Engineering Research (ACEER 2020)
Invited Speakers
Dr. Youichi YASUDA

Professor, Laboratory of Environmental Hydraulics, Department sub-head of Civil Engineering, College of Science and Technology, Nihon University, Japan
Youichi YASUDA started his research carrier on hydraulics of drop structures with Prof. Ohtsu, and he earned a Doctoral degree in Engineering from Nihon University in 1993. After that, he has been mainly focusing on assessing eco-hydraulic researches on fish passage for the upstream migration of multi-aquatic animals, hydraulics below hydraulic drop structures (Dam, Check dam, Sabo dam, Irrigation weir, and Ground sill), drainage ability of rain flows in pipes, river restoration, nature conservation projects, and etc. He also was honored by ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) as Karl-Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize (Best paper in Journal of Hydraulic Engineering prize) in 2000, and J. C. Stevens Award (Best Discussion paper in Journal of Hydraulic Engineering prize) in 2005 and 2013.

Speech Title: Improvement of flow condition in channelized river due to stacked boulders
Abstract: Recently, a channelized river was constructed in natural rivers from the point of flood control, and the river fell into drainage channel. During flood stages, it might be impossible for aquatic animals to stay at channelized river. Also, degradation and disappearance of gravel bed might be formed easily, because flood flow was concentrated into the same route for normal stage. The improvement of flow condition in channelized river must be required as soon as possible. As a short-term of construction for the improvement, the installation of stacked boulders might be helpful for both habitat and refuge of aquatic animals. The installation of stacked boulders with about 1 m size was conducted at channelized portion with 20 m wide and 1/200 slope in Kando River, Shimane Prefecture, and a surface jet flow with three dimensional could be formed in both normal and flood stages. The stability of the installation during flood stages has been confirmed in both scale model and prototype. After the installation, several kinds of aquatic animals could be observed around stacked boulders, and movable gravels with 3 mm to 100 mm diameters were deposited below stacked boulders.


Dr. Shanyong Wang

Professor, School of Engineering, The University of Newcastle, Australia
Dr. Shanyong Wang is a full Professor at the School of Engineering at The University of Newcastle, Australia. He obtained his PhD at the City University of Hong Kong in 2007. In September 2007, he moved to the USA and worked as a full time postdoctoral research fellow at the Catholic University of America (CUA). In November 2008, he joined the Centre for Geotechnical and Materials Modelling (CGMM) at the University of Newcastle, Australia. In January 2019, Dr Wang was promoted to Professor at the University of Newcastle. His expertise and research interests lie in advanced computational analysis of soft soil deformation and improvement and fractures evolution in brittle materials such as concrete and rock by the finite element and discrete element methods, as well as the experimental study of loose fill slopes and soil nail combined with grouting. Since 2002, he has published 165 international journal articles and conference papers. In addition, he is an Editorial Board member for seven international SCI journals: Soils and Foundations, Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Computers and Geotechnics, Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, Proceedings of ICE-Geotechnical Engineering, Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environment, and Journal of Rock Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. He was elected a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia, and a Member of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) in 2017.

Speech Title: Static Compaction Characteristics of Soils
Abstract: The modified Proctor’s test, the reduced modified Proctor’s test, the standard Proctor’s test and the reduced standard Proctor’s test are dynamic methods which are often used in the laboratory to ascertain the compaction characteristics of soils at different energy levels. However, these dynamic compaction methods are laborious and time consuming and have some shortcomings for which it has been attempted in recent years to ascertain the compaction characteristics of soil by static compaction method.
