Dr. Ruilin Yang obtained a Bachelor Science Degree in Mining Engineering from Northeast University (1982) in China and a Ph. D degree in Mining Engineering from University of Queensland in Australia. After his Ph. D, he worked with JK Centre, CSIRO, Queens University as a research fellow on geo-mechanics and blast modeling. Then he joined Orica in 1993 working on explosive testing, field blast diagnosis, and blast modeling. He developed several applied blasting models and theories, which are applied in worldwide mining industry. Now he is principal research fellow - the highest technical position a person could achieve at Orica, and he is a fellow of Canadian Academy of Engineering.

The International Symposium on Rock Fragmentation by Blasting (FRAGBLAST) is a key international forum for sharing the state of the art in rock blasting and explosives engineering. It aims at promoting the understanding of explosive-rock interaction in all aspects and the exchange of research and field experience in rock blasting. Beginning in 1983, the FRAGBLAST symposia have been held in Sweden (1983 & 2018), USA1986, Australia (1990 & 2015), Austria1993, Canada1996, South Africa1999, China (2002), Chile2006, Spain2009 and India2012, contributing an unparalleled combination of scientific advances and practical applications. 

With the prominence of blasting engineering activities and R&D initiatives in China, the FRAGBLAST International Organizing Committee (FIOC) has rewarded the 13th International Symposium on Rock Fragmentation by Blasting (FRAGBLAST 13) to China Society of Explosives and Blasting (CSEB), and the event will be held on October 17-19, 2022, in Hangzhou, “City of Heaven” in China.

We hope FRAGBLAST 13 could draw attentions from blasting engineers, explosives manufacturers as well as researchers and professionals of related disciplines all over the world.
