Outline

Practices to reduce environmental impact in addition to safety and security technologies are necessary to sustain sustainable human activities as a lifeline. It is important to develop “Holistic Engineering” integrating Design, Construction, Operation and Maintenance technologies. In order to achieve such a task, the laboratory aims to develop green technologies in conjunction with existing advanced technologies to secure urban infrastructures in terms of disaster-free and long life.
