At the Solid Mechanics Laboratory, study for using safely the material used for a machine is done by exploring the essence of machine material and carrying out science of the safety. It is inquiring by specifically dividing into the following three classes for the industrial material (steel, nonferrous metal, composite material, ceramic and polymeric material) used for machines. (1) Mechanism clarification of fracture and fatigue phenomenon which applied state-of-the-art apparatus. (2) Proposal of the strength predictive-analysis model using the mechanics (a finite element method, micro mechanics, molecular dynamics) of various classes based on the clarified mechanism. (3) Application to the new-materials rapid utilization by applying the proposed model, joining with the other laboratory not only with the other mechanical laboratory.
