In the area of structural seismic resistance, we will learn about the design, construction, and maintenance of various structures supporting social infrastructure, such as bridges. With the aim of creating structures resistant to earthquakes and other disasters and ensuring durability, our extensive research uses advanced numerical analysis, precise experiments and measurement technology. Through study and research in this area, we can acquire knowledge and skills to apply in designing for seismic resistance and maintenance engineering.
Structural Engineering Laboratories
Structural & Earthquake Engineering Laboratory
We are conducting research on new robust bridge designs by elucidating the failure process of bridges from shaking to collapse under design limitation exceed earthquakes using experiments and computer simulations.
Structural Systems Engineering Laboratory
The following studies are being conducted to protect structures from deterioration:.
- Seismic behaviour of deteriorated structures
- Soundness evaluation and maintenance of steel structures
- Evaluation of corrosion environment and development of corrosion protection technologies
