OVERVIEW 計算科学研究機構とは

Computational Disaster Mitigation and Reduction Research Unit

Computational disaster mitigation and reduction research unit is aimed at advancing large-scale numerical simulation for natural disasters such as earthquake, tsunami and heavy rain, targeting Kobe City and other urban areas in Hyogo Prefectures. Beside for the construction of a sophisticated urban area model and the development of new numerical codes, the unit seeks to be a bridge between Science and Local Government for the disaster mitigation and reduction.

Research Subjects

  • Development of next generation urban area model for Kobe City
  • Execution of large scale multi disaster simulation and smart visualization
  • Development of advanced numerical methods for liquefaction and related problems
