Research on steel building structures is conducted in this laboratory. In order to construct safe, functional, and economical buildings, many remaining unknown relations between structural performance and load input must be clarified in the all aspects of material, design, and fabrication.
Widely-selected research subjects, such as steel properties, welding, buckling, fracture, frame collapse, system reliability, seismic load, and wind force, are experimentally and analytically investigated in this laboratory.
