Areas of specialization
Laboratory/research office Seismic Design Laboratory
In the face of the violent power of nature, humans are rather powerless. On the other hand, we constantly benefit from the rich bounty of nature. This is the dynamic nature of everyday life in Japan. In our seismic design laboratory, our ongoing work is to: develop an accurate understanding of the phenomena of natural hazards; analyze those phenomena and elucidate their structures; and seriously consider responses to natural disasters.
