It’s being studied about dynamic stability and performance functional evaluation of an agricultural facilities structure (earth dam, embankment, open channel, pipeline, etc.) for the necessity of food production. In particular, the destructive behavior of foundation ground becomes complicated by various foreign factors of a giant earthquake, a heavy rain and a heavy snow, etc. Using a model experiment and numerical analysis (Finite Element Method), I have a reflection to a practical design for my purpose. If there is a person who would like to touch “soil” even a little, please knock on a door of the laboratory.

Research Theme

1) Study about the liquefaction of soft foundation ground

2) Study about the introduction and practical use of a performance design method for level 2 earthquake motion

3) Study about the interaction between foundation ground and structure

4) Study about the shear strength characteristic of composite foundation ground
