研究紹介

研究室で取り組んでいる研究テーマは,大きく分けて建築構造学,地震工学に関連した次の3つに分類できます。

建築物の構造設計技術の高度化Integrated Structural Design

設計者を支援する最適設計・最適制御の技術と,所有者・使用者が望む性能を具体化する性能設計の思想を融合した,新しい設計手法の開発に取り組んでいます。耐震,免震,制震(制振)といった構造システムの設計を高度化することで地震災害の一層の低減を目指しています。

We are developing an integrated structural design methodology that will synthesize performance-based design and optimal design of structures and control. This methodology will help realize architectural and civil engineering structures with the performance demanded by the users and owners. By improving the structural design by methods such as the effective use of passive, semi-active, and active vibration control systems, we aim to further mitigate the impact of earthquake disasters.

地震被害の予測・推定Seismic Risk Assessment and Damage Estimation

地震防災は,事前の備えと事後の対応の2つのフェーズに分けることができます。適切な事前対策・事後対応を支援するため,地震動入力や構造物被害のより高精度の予測・推定手法の構築を目指しています。

Earthquake disaster management comprises pre-event and post-event phases. We are developing high-precision methods of risk assessment and damage estimation to support appropriate pre-event tasks such as preparedness, mitigation, and early warning, and post-event tasks such as emergency response, recovery, and reconstruction.

防災すまい・まちづくりResistant and Resilient Community Development

災害が生じにくく,災害が起きてもすばやく回復することができる「しなやかな仕組み」を備えた社会をデザインするため,リスク評価・被害推定技術を核にした,防災システムや防災すまい・まちづくりの研究に取り組んでいます。

Disaster reduction systems and disaster-resistant housing and communities are extensively studied to build a society with secure and resilient mechanisms against disasters; risk assessment and damage estimation of structures forms an important part of such studies.
