Research Interests

We have interests in evaluation of residual stress and damages of materials (fatigue, crack propagation, stress corrosion, etc.). Accurate and reliable predictive models are important that explain the phenomenon well for considering life cycle of mechanical/ structural products and development materials.

To reveal the mechanics, the understanding of materials in multi scale (sub nanometer to millimeter scale) is required because their characteristics due to several kinds of mechanisms in several kinds of scale.

We are developing a new research field in strength of materials by linking together macroscopic and microscopic deformation behaviors. Moreover, some new structural analysis methods have devised by our group as needed. We believe that our studies will contribute to establish safe and secure society.
