We pursue education and research on material and related technologies for asset integrity management of ships and offshore structures (fatigue and corrosion), design of ships and offshore structures in ice sea (maneuverability and structural response under ice load), fabrication technologies of large steel structures (curved plate forming, straightening, quality control).

With wave-body interactions as the core theme, the propulsion and seakeeping performance of ships in actual seas are studied in terms of theoretical analyses, numerical computations, wave-basin experiments, and onboard data analyses. As university-industry collaboration, “a prediction and analysis system for ship propulsion performance in waves” is developed by integrating analysis tools developed so far. In addition, we are also doing research on cloaking of a floating body, wave-energy absorption, and development of a floating platform for offshore wind-energy utilization.
