My Areas of Research

Research to ensure the quality and durability of concrete buildings in cold areas

In cold and snowy regions, antifreeze agents are sprayed on the roads to ensure winter traffic safety. Common antifreeze agents use sodium chloride, which is a factor in the degradation of concrete structures. In order to extend the life of concrete structures, along with proposing quality assurance methods for use during the construction of concrete structures, I am making a list of the degradation phenomena that may occur, studying their respective mechanisms and trying to find countermeasures against them.

My Teaching Philosophy

It is said that construction engineering is experience engineering, demanding the development of basic skills and the ability to apply them practically. First, my aim is to establish basic knowledge of the subject. In the next step, I foster understanding of how that technology will be applied and the ability to appropriately judge the information.
