Division of Agricultural Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering for Agriculture

In our laboratory, education and research is carried out in the following subjects: Disaster prevention engineering toward creating rich agricultural land and rural areas with beautiful, safe environments; Geotechnical and environmental engineering to solve problems which relate to irrigation and drainage functions of agricultural land such as dams, irrigation ponds, pipelines and open channels. Examples of our recent research themes are as follow:

  1. Disaster prevention for agricultural land and irrigation ponds,
  2. Earthquake resistant design of fill dams,
  3. Development of techniques for the reuse of muddy soil for the reconstruction of deteriorated earth fill dams
  4. Analysis of granular flow for geotechnical problems,
  5. Behavior of buried structures and the Dynamic behavior of buried flexible pipelines.
