We aim at improving earthquake-resistant performance of buildings. Our research topics are as follows:

  1. Prediction of earthquake ground motion
  2. Seismic source modeling
  3. Evaluation of the effects of surface geology on seismic ground motion
  4. Base isolation system and soil improvement method
  5. Dynamic soil-structure interaction

Our research group mainly studies seismic performance of concrete building structures: reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, CLT-concrete composite, and masonry through experimental, analytical, and theoretical approaches. Research interests also cover design methodology for new construction, seismic retrofit for substandard existing buildings, and field investigation on earthquake damage.

Assistant Professor HATANAKA Yuki

We conduct research on the mechanical property of materials, members and joints and on the theory of seismic design, forcussed on steel structures.
