Historical studies in civil engineering, disaster recovery and urban formation


It is important to look back on the history in order to develop the town in the future. What kind of civil engineering technology did the predecessors develop, how did they recover after the disaster, and how did they build the city? We reveal their history by collecting and analyzing archives (documents, drawings, oral histories).


Preservation and utilization of historical civil engineering structures


If not rescued, historical civil engineering structures will be lost. We will conduct a survey and
evaluate the value of these in order to promote their preservation and utilization, and to utilize
them as a "regional asset" in regional development. Then, we will consider and implement ways
to preserve and utilize the civil engineering heritages
