High temperature structural system as a research target

 This laboratory has contributed solutions to problems in environment and energy security. Presently, the main focus is research and education to improve safety and reliability of nuclear power plants and equipment.

Ensuring safety of complex systems

 Our laboratory contributes to the development of engineering standards. Our work aims at the development of practical strength and response models by identifying dominant physical phenomenon through experimental methods. By understanding the behavior of various components, we aim to apply this method to entire plant structures; thus, enabling design by analysis methods throughout the structural design process of plants and reactors.
 Furthermore, in order to improve the safety and reliability of future energy plants, we developed innovative evaluation methods considering uncertainty of strength and load parameters, improving the accuracy of verification and inspection evaluations.
