My research will look at the development of Basic and Clinical Environmental Studies from the perspective of architectural structures including homes and offices, and the construction and maintenance of social infrastructure.

Research Themes

  • Elucidation of concrete structure deterioration mechanisms
  • Development of models to predict course of life of concrete structures
  • Research on materials utilization in structures that can contribute to resources saving
  • Research on the practical application of ultra high-strength, high-durability concrete
  • Research on the elucidation of architectural materials deterioration mechanisms
