The laboratory works on the research about structures constructed by timber members. The timber, which has sustainability of stable supply, has been used for buildings since a long time ago, and the future demand is expected. However, the behavior of timber cannot be predicted precisely, because the timber has complex characteristic, which is anisotropy, nonlinearity, inhomogeneous material and so on. In order to improving the safety of timber structure, it is necessary to keep a continuous research. For the purpose of providing reliable space, We deal with basic research for timber and technological development of timber structure.
