Research content

We deal with stresses and strains of engineering materials subjected to applied loads to clarify materials’strength behavior and to design substantial structure based on practical experimental and numerical analyses. These results are associated with developing an optimum structural design and establishment of proper evaluation systems for substantial materials under hard conditions. We will provide manufacturing technology for future structures of machines.
