Introduction to Research

This program deals with the various topics wiht intentions to contribute to the maintenance, restoration and construction of sustainable societies on the earth. Specifically, we investigate subjects such as the construction and maintenance of infrastructures, disaster prevention, environmental problems, and resource and the energy developments. We put particular stress on the improvement of analytical and predictive abilities for each components in the infrastructure from the standpoint of the computational and experimental mechanics. At the same time we promote investigations on the technological fundamentals for understanding huge systems ranging from earth's crust to the atmosphere, based on the state of the art technologies such as computational science, etc.

The research in this course are provided by academic staffs in The Department of Urban Management. The list of the staffs can be seen in this page
