We are conducting research regarding the ground that supports our living infrastructure. Japan has limited narrow national land and has been suffered by many natural disasters. Therefore, it is necessary to use effectively the underground space and to form the resilient ground against natural disasters. In the response to these needs, we have contributed to provide the results based on fundamental study with taking advantage of University’s strengths. In particular, we are conducting laboratory soil element tests on sand and clay, and model tests on liquefaction and ground vibration. We are striving to study hard to provide safe and secure in our everyday life.

研究室の一日A Day in the Lab


Students in the laboratory are conducting experimental works to obtain new findings. Therefore, we use our time to prepare the samples for experiments, to check data, and to establish experimental programs. It sometimes takes long time to get the data from experiments. However, it is possible to use time effectively by making plan considering work-life balance. Consequently, we can also acquire a schedule management ability. Besides research, there are some events such as ball games, conference presentations, and watching fireworks. In these events, all students in the laboratory are working together and enjoying themselves with full power!
