| Structural Safety System Lab>>
This laboratory undertakes a range of research related to wind and cities / architecture, such as the development of methods for evaluating the wind resistance of various structures, from small-scale to large-space structures, and their component materials as well as wind-resistant design methods; strategies for predicting and minimizing damage from wind disasters such as typhoons and tornadoes; development of ground wind prediction methods and their application in minimizing damage caused by strong winds; and the development of micro wind-powered power generation systems.
| Performance Control System Lab
This laboratory aims to reexamine from a mathematical standpoint structural design, which has conventionally depended on the experience of designers, and establish engineering methods that find the answers that best suit the purposes of an architectural structure. Specifically, the laboratory undertakes research and development related to methods for most practically and appropriately designing steel structures and RC building frames by applying mathematical design methods as well as methods for most appropriately designing quake-absorbing and vibration-suppressing systems.
| Adaptive Design Engineering Lab>>
Anti-disaster performances (such as seismic, reparability, durability, tsunami-proof performance) of buildings according to the arbitrary scenarios through their lifespan are studied via analytical, experimental, and reconnaissance researches.
