Structural Dynamics

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 modification devices, sophisticated high performance structures.

Research Topics

The major field of research 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.

Research Topics

To realize more effective and efficient maintenance and management of bridges, I seek to predict the amount of airborne sea salt in each member of a bridge on the basis of a numerical simulation of air flows. Additionally, I also work on wind tunnel experiment to investigate and solve wind-induced vibration of bridges.
