SHIMAZU Haruki

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Environmental Sanitary Laboratory
Environmental Engineering

Our laboratory investigates the status and sources of pollution from chemical substances in the atmosphere and water, in microorganisms, and the like. We examine whether the possibility exists that a substance would have an adverse impact on people and ecosystems, and conduct research with the aim of building appropriate systems to manage and control chemical substances.

TAKEHARA Kohsei

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Environmental Hydraulic Laboratory
Hydraulics

We are engaged in a wide range of research including gas transport phenomena in oceans and surrounding flow fields related to the motion of microorganisms. In addition, we are studying the phenomenon of water droplets and gas bubbles using the world's fastest video camera developed at this university.

NODA Hiroshi

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Wind Engineering Laboratory
Wind Engineering, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Risk Assessment

As seawater temperatures near Japan have risen in recent years, disaster damage caused by powerful winds, for example, typhoons and tornadoes, has been increasing. We study the safety of buildings with respect to strong winds and the strong winds themselves.

HISA Takahiro

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Social System Laboratory
Urban planning、Urban design、Community design

FUCHIHATA Manabu

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Thermal Engineering Laboratory
Combustion Engineering

We give thought to fuels and combustion technologies that minimize emissions of hazardous substances and carbon dioxide. We research small-scale, high-efficiency, and low-pollution technologies to burn various fuels that can be produced from plant-derived biomass.

HIRAGURI Yasuhiro
