In order to support a sustainable, circular society (3R), we have explored a variety of technologies and designs. The SDGs call for reduced reliance on non-renewable resources and reduction of environmental impact. We are researching advances in construction materials using ICT, checking and maintaining degraded concrete structures, and evaluating the use of recycled building materials.
Earth / Construction Materials Laboratory
We are conducting research on the maintenance and durability of concrete structures from the viewpoint of material science and computational mechanics. Skills in science-based engineering judgement to address problems in the field will be essential for future infrastructure management.
Civil Materials Laboratory
To support a more sustainable, circular society, our laboratories are developing recycled materials for use in the construction field, such as roof tile aggregate, recycled gypsum, and rice husk ash. We are conducting experimental and analytical research to conduct studies that contribute to the theme.
