    Advanced Infrastructure Design and Maintenance Engineering Subarea

    Professor KAMADA Toshiro   Associate Professor OKURA Ichiro   Assistant Professor TERASAWA Koki
    Improvement of maintenance manner for existing structures and application of highly-durable materials to newly-built structures are required to achieve the long service life of infrastructure. Advanced technology contributed to infrastructure design and maintenance is studied in our laboratory. Research topics are as follows;
    1. Nondestructive inspections and monitoring technology
    2. Repair and reinforcement of structural members (e.g. Fiber reinforced concrete)
    3. Application of aluminum alloys to bridge design

    Structural Engineering Subarea

    Professor NARA Satoshi   Assistant Professor KAMEI Yoshinori
    The Laboratory of Structural Engineering strongly contributes to the development of structural design codes and bridge constructions based on an original elasto-plastic finite displacement analysis method and precise experiments. Moreover, in collaboration with governments, design offices and fabricators, promotion of advanced technology for long life span and rehabilitation of metropolitan infrastructures, and improvement of structural performances are current topics of the laboratory.

    Geotechnical Engineering Subarea

    Professor TOKIDA Ken-ichi   Associate Professor ODA Kazuhiro   Assistant Professor HATA Yoshiya
    Since every civil engineering structures are closely related to the ground, their foundation should be stable during an earthquake, tsunami, rainfall etc. In other words, it is required to construct the foundation supporting the civil engineering structures and the earth structures such as embankment with seismic resistance. These construction and its maintenance connect directly creation of social infrastructure considering security and safety. Thus, we are carrying out investigation, analysis and technical development with respect to the earth structure considering 'stamina' of soils and foundations.

    Land Development and Management Engineering Subarea

    Professor AOKI Shin-ichi   Associate Professor ARAKI Susumu
    Land Development and Management Engineering Subarea is commonly called as Coastal Engineering Laboratory. Aiming at harmonization of development and environmental conservation, we are tackling various coastal problems such as coastal protection against beach erosion, tsunami and storm surge, optimal design of port facilities, preservation of shallow waters, etc. through field observation, model experiments, and computer simulations.

    Water Engineering Subarea

    Professor NISHIDA Shuzo   Associate Professor IRIE Masayasu   Assistant Professor NAKATANI Yusuke
    This laboratory is dedicated to wide range of research on hydraulics and water environment. Our researches have centered on computational fluid dynamics and environmental analysis by field observation. Currently, our primary interest is to analyze and simulate bio-geochemical processes and nutrient cycles in urban tidal rivers, estuaries, coastal seas, lakes and watersheds.

    Transportation and Spatial Planning Subarea

    Professor DOI Kenji   Associate Professor IIDA Katsuhiro   Assistant Professor INOI Hiroto
    We have been investigating integrated transportation systems and community building suitable for a future society.
    1.Visioning sustainable transport, by evaluating effect of assist-system for sustainability of urban transport and transportation planning system with on slow mobility
    2.Solving traffic congestion and accidents on a highway , by analysis of the cause which traffic congestion using a driving simulator
    3.Ensuring Mobility in Daily Living by Local public transport collaborated with the resident and Special transport service for impaired and elderly people.

    Civil Infrastructure Management Subarea

    Professor TAMAI Masahiro   Associate Professor KAITO Kiyoyuki   Assistant Professor KOIZUMI Keigo
    This research area develop (1) systematic methodologies for asset and risk managements to solve various decision-making issues with the plan, design, maintenance, and operation of infrastructure, and (2) frontier element technologies, including simulation, monitoring, and sensing systems, for obtaining information for its decision-making.
