Construction Technology of Building Structures

The damage evaluation has been increasing its importance because more structures are designed based on the performance based design criteria and behaviors for different load cases need to be precisely predicted. It is also recognized that after several large-scale earthquakes in the last decade an appropriate damage evaluation scheme is a must to determine the economical and appropriate rehabilitation strategies.

Our research group aims to propose a scheme to design new reinforced concrete structures controlling damage under different loading conditions. Using a same knowledge on the damage, a optimum rehabilitation scheme may be proposed for existing buildings. Research is carried out fully utilizing our structural labs and computing facilities/programs.
