Research policy and content

In our laboratory, we are working on research that focuses on the maintenance and management of concrete structures.In particular, we are studying methods for inspecting and investigating the inside of concrete, centering on methods using elastic waves.

Some of our research themes include:

  • Research on residual prestress estimation method for prestressed concrete by non-destructive testing method
  • Evaluation of structure formation process of concrete under steam curing and research on structure formation inhibition factors
  • A Study on Strength Estimation Method of Tunnel Lining Concrete by Nondestructive Test Method
  • Research on Position Location Method Considering Velocity Variation of Acoustic Emission (AE) Method

In addition, we are conducting experiments and discussions jointly with Associate Professor Atsushi Ueno's laboratory, which is characterized by a wide understanding of concrete.
