Research Center for Geotechnical & Geo-environmental Studies

Centrifuge apparatus

This specialized experimental apparatus enables us to simulate actual sized models by testing miniaturized models at high rotational speeds. Although such experiments are still rare elsewhere, we have more than 20 years of experience in this field.

Model ground improvement machine

This machine is used to produce improved pile-formed body borings by using special screws that mix the ground and cement. In this center, we investigate the most effective screw shapes and the best soil/cement ratios by considering temperature and soil property influences.

Intelligent Robotics Center

Testbed for developing mobile robots

We use force plates to estimate both floor reaction force and joint torque.

Our motion capture system measures the position of UAVs in flight.
