Keywords Rock Properties, Rock Cavern Storage for Liquefied Natural Gas, Liquefaction
Summary My research themes are “rock mechanics” and “sand mechanics.” In research on the theme of the rock mechanics, in response to a plan to store cryogenic fuel such as liquid hydrogen and liquefied natural gas based on the same principle used for storing oil in rock, I am conducting experiments to study the deformation and failure behavior of rock during the cooling process from room temperatures to -170°C. On the theme of the sand mechanics, I have just started study on liquefaction in preparation for an earthquake that is most likely to occur off the coast of Miyagi prefectures of Japan, because damage caused by liquefaction can be expected to occur at ports along the coast of Iwate if an earthquake occurs.
