We are conducting research on seismic design and damage control of concrete composite structures, with a focus on reinforced concrete structures. We are performing experiments and analyses that rationally apply dampers to concrete structures to reduce earthquake response, and suppress damage. In addition, we are conducting that seek to develop a new seismic retrofitting technique for existing buildings, and researching the utilization of drones to evaluate building damage. Main research topics of our laboratory are listed as below;
・Applications of dampers in concrete composite structures
・Structural performance evaluation of reinforced concrete members
・Development of a new seismic retrofitting technique for existing concrete composite structures
・Development of high ductility technology for masonry buildings
・Utilization of drone in disaster investigation
