In our laboratory, we undertake basic research on the manufacturing processes of steel and carbon related materials, to use the limited resources and to save the energy on the earth, and also to secure the comfortable living environment. We perform two research fields related to the manufacturing processes currently; one is to achieve high efficiency and performance on various processes, and another one is to explore a new process for the future. It is necessary to analyze the basic phenomena in the material manufacturing process, the reaction, the flow, and the heat transfer, to achieve these research fields. Not only the experiments in the high temperature furnace but also the simulation analyses via workstation and PC clusters are carried out daily to tackle these research fields.
