The Vice President of Xi’an University of Science and Technology, Li Shugang has long been engaged in the scientific research on safe co-mining of coal and gas, stope pressure and rock strata control as well as in the corresponding discipline teaching. He innovated the theory of mining fracture ellipsoid ejection zone, developed the gas extraction technology of ellipsoid ejection zone, proposed the nonlinear instability mechanism of coal and rock gas, and initially established the s imultaneous extracting of coal and gas and its technical system based on mining fissure elliptic paraboloid zoneand gas safety extraction, with all the results applied in more than 10 mining areas.

He has presided over one key project of National Natural Science Foundation of China, one Special Project for Scientific Instruments, and six Surface Projects, coupled with nearly 10 provincial projects and over 30 Enterprises Cooperation Projects. He has published more than 300 academic papers in Safety Science, Journal of China Coal Society, and Journal of Rock Mechanics and Engineering, with as many as 150 papersindexed by SCI/EI. He has obtained more than 40 National Invention Patents, Utility Model Patents and Software Copyright . And his publications involve 5 monographs and 11 textbooks. As the leader of s imultaneous extracting of coal and gas reaching group, he has been taking a pioneering role in the discipline and its construction of echelon, cultivating 3 professors and more than 10 associate professors. So many innovative research results allow him to enjoy special government allowances from the State Council.
