Program for Capacity Building in
Global Water-Environmental Engineering





Because of recent significant advances in the hardware and software of computers, “Computational Mechanics”, which tries to understand and clarify dynamic events through numerical simulation, is attracting attention as a powerful tool, together with “Theoretical Mechanics” and “Experimental Mechanics”. In order to take the true meaning of computational mechanics into practice, we, in our laboratory, study the vision and techniques of computational mechanics, and intend to promote computer-aided engineering in civil engineering and to cultivate new developments in computational mechanics.
