My Areas of Research

Developing a simple bridge inspection system using small FWDs

In order to ensure the convenience of our civil infrastructure, one of the big problems we need to solve is the aging of its structures. In particular, the deterioration of the bridges that are one of the structures making up our road network has come to light, and studying measures to repair them has become a big problem. Simple and effective measures must be taken to resolve this problem. In my research lab we are developing a system
that can easily measure the performance of bridge structures, and are using it to examine bridges on highways, etc., and plan countermeasures.

My Teaching Philosophy

I teach with the aim of providing a broad range of the learning required in handling civil infrastructure, from the basic knowledge of structural mechanics, maintenance and management engineering, steel structure studies, composite structure science, etc., to the applicable contents of these subjects. My goal is to educate students and graduates with a variety of perspectives who are able to perform both locally and globally.
