From Jan 22nd to 30th , the associate professor of our university Guo Jianchun was invited to visit University of Houston、Texas A&M University and The University of Texas in Austin, accompanying young teacher Liu Yuxuan from Oil Production Station and doctoral candidate Lu Qianli.
During the visit in University of Houston, professor Guo achieved initial intent of cooperation with Tedesco, Dean of Engineering College, on issues like the joint education of undergraduate and graduate student and the sending of exchanging scholars. Professor Guo’s team along with academician Christine Ehlig-Economides and professor Mohamed Soliman had extensive discussions on the dilemma in deep acid-fracturing for high temperature carbonate reservoir in our country, they also had extensive discussions on the issues about crustal stress and rock mechanics concerning with hydraulic fracturing. Then they paid a visit to the rock mechanics laboratory of University of Houston.
During the visit in Texas A&M University, professor Guo and his team made extensive discussions with professor A.D.Hill and professor Ding Zhu on the issues about the development of shale and Tight Gas and some other abnormal reservoir along with the diagnosis of hydraulic fracture morphology.
During the visit in The University of Texas in Austin, professor Guo along with his team was invited to deliver a speech about ‘the key mechanics problems in deep shale fracturing’, and analyzed the problems and cognition achieved in deep shale fracturing of China, they also made extensive discussions with professor Jon Olson, associate director Kamy Sepehrnoori and professor M.M. Sharma in the light of hydraulic crack propagation and the fracture parameters optimization. Then they achieved initial intent of cooperation on issues like the joint education of undergraduate and graduate student and the sending of exchanging scholars.
The visit enhances mutual understanding between us and other world-famous universities, expands the space of international cooperation, enlarges school popularity and reputation, and lays a solid foundation on raising talents and internationalizing our teaching staff.
