    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.
