Geotechnical Engineering Laboratory

Connecting technologies, disaster mitigation, environmental conservation and economy surrounding the geosphere

Our laboratory aims to study ways for future generations to sustain and develop urban foundations and environments by managing and improving ground and social infrastructures so that they may exist in harmony with changing natural and social environments. To this end, we are conducting research for conceptualizing and developing geotechnical and social infrastructures that would robustly adapt to various natural disasters that we are experiencing now or expect to strike us in the future.

For Society

It is necessary to secure human resources capable of planning and implementing diverse measures that are coherent across wide regions for the purpose of addressing issues associated with ground-related disaster mitigation, environmental conservation and sustainable development. Our laboratory is playing a part in developing human resources who have the foresight and capability based on the conventional basic sciences to stand at the forefront to contemplate complex and expanding problems in ground-related disaster mitigation and environment.
