Messages from Bridge Research and Education Team, Yokohama National University
Various resources of our bridge research and education group
The most important research resources are colleagues who check our web-page, including you, and many students who share our research interests.
We express our deepest thanks for coming to our web^page.
It will be true that constructions of new bridges are needed for sustainable development of areas all over the world, but in Japan main flow of the bridge engineering has been shifted from the construction to the maintenance. But we do not forget emotion to open a new route on waters, and we hope to keep continuous passions to develop new technology and vision for new structures.
Hitoshi YAMADA, Professor
Member of the research team
I am very happy to share wonderful reserach experiences with my colleaguse and students, including my old students.
Those people are my imprtant treasure.

Facilities for research
We have offices at EIS building No.1 ,wind tunnels and testing machines at Civil engineering experiment building. ．
Location of our offices are on 6th floor of the EIS No.1 building, which you will find in YNU access information.
Low speed wind tunnels
We have following world-class wind tunnels. Those have been used for many actual projects over the world.
- Closed circuit wind tunnel: Urban atmosphere simulator This is a closed circuit low wind speed wind tunnel for infrastructures with 1.8m x 1.8m cross section, constructed in 1993. Its maximum wind speed is almost 40m/s.
- Open circuit wind tunnel: Turbulence wind tunnel This is an open circuit low wind speed wind tunnel for infrastructures wit 1.8m x 1.8m cross section, constructed in 1983. Its maximum wind speed is almost 25m/s. This Eiffel wind tunnel is our home where we start our research history at YNU. In 2014 this wind tunnel is renovated adding rain and heat simulation devices
Testing machines at Civil engineering experiment building
We are sharing many testing machines with concrete team.
