Geotechnical engineering is one of studies for research on involvement in human being and soil or more specifically coexistence of people and earth in the general meaning. Geotechnical laboratory studies on not only soil mechanics for foundation of ground but also geotechnical disaster prevention (Earthquake, heavy rain and flood) and geo-environmental engineering (utilization of industrial by-product ).
The following research projects are carrying on:

  • "Geo-Medical Plant Engineering Science" through application of Medical Plant Licorice at Semi-arid Area with approach toward development of ground Improvement technology for greening
  • Climate change adaption technology on geotechnical disaster in Kyushu and Okinawa
  • Geo-environmental improvement techniques using various local resources for sustainable development

Development of "Suction Drain" with a technology of ground water

Staff

Prof. Noriyuki Yasufuku
Assoc.Prof. Ryohei Ishikura

The Main Research Topics

  • Application of Medical Plant Licorice at Semi-arid Area
  • Approach toward Development of Ground Improvement Technology for Greening
