Our Laboratory

The research topics of Structural Dynamics group are centered around various engineering issues related to structural dynamics, wind engineering, earthquake engineering, and design of structural systems for large-scale infrastructures. The area of interest also covers the application of the state-of-the-art dynamic response modofication devices, sophisticated high peformance strcutures.

Wind-induced Dynamics

The major field in this topic is wind-induced instabilities of structures. Especially, the mechanism of wind-induced vibrations of bridges and the development of their countermeasures are investigated. Also, the mitigation of wind-induced disasters due to the typhoons and the tornados is another research topic.

Earthquake-induced Dynamics

The major field of this topic is seismic performance of structures. Especially, the developement of high seismic performance structure, the evaluation of structural control technologies are investigated. Also, the methodology of hybrid simulation of structural systems is another research topic.
