In our laboratory, novel materials were developed based on the computational science such as FEM (Finite Element Method), Ab initio and MD(Molecular Dynamics) calculation for safe and reliable society.
1) Microstructural analysis of ductile fracture behaviour based on the non-linear fracture mechanics and its application to high strength steel.
2) New silicon clathrate compounds as a high efficiency thermoelectric material without temperature gradient by controlling band gap. (accepted for energy-environment new technology leading program of NEDO project ).
3) Human body- and earth-friendly materials and devices: Hydrogen absorption materials, hydrogen detection device using ultrasound, and a new process for solar cells.
