    Micro Materials Engineering Subarea

    Professor MINOSHIMA Kohji   Associate Professor HIRAKATA Hiroyuki   Assistant Professor KONDO Toshiyuki
    The research group aims at understanding the deformation and fracture of nano- and micro-scale materials. It remains unclear whether conventional concepts on material strength for bulk materials are valid in the nano- and micro-scale materials. Experimental methodologies for investigating the dominant mechanics and mechanisms on the nano- and micro scales have not been established. We develop novel experimental methods for clarifying the nano- and micro-mechanics of deformation and fracture of small structures.

    Nano Measurement in Production Subarea

    Professor TAKAYA Yasuhiro   Associate Professor MIZUTANI Yasuhiro
    We integrate nano measurement and fabrication in order to establish the highly developped nano production system. Our research are based on the laser applied measurement and fabrication techniques. One of the typical research topics is developping nano-CMM system for nano in-process measurement. Optical radiation force is applied for controlling the sensitive non-contact probe in the integrated nano maching system. This probe is expected to realize better than 10nm resolution during 3-D coordinate measureing.

    Fluid Mechanics Subarea

    Professor KAJISHIMA Takeo   Associate Professor TAKEUCHI Shintaro   Assistant Professor OMORI Takeshi   Assistant Professor OKABAYASHI Kie
    We study the physics of fluid flow, mainly turbulence, fluid-solid interaction and interfacial phenomena, using numerical simulation. The study includes development of new numerical techniques and their application to practical systems. Potential application of our expertise covers broad situations from analysis of existing fluid machinery to development of brand-new mechanical complex.

    Multiscale Transport Phenomena Subarea

    Associate Professor YAMAGUCHI Yasutaka
    We carry out molecular scale analysis on theliquid properties including viscosity and surface tension and on the physico-chemical structure of liquid interface. We also try to model these physicochemical effects applicable to the macroscopic simulation of the fluid motion including interfaces.

    Combustion Engineering Subarea

    Professor AKAMATSU Fumiteru   Associate Professor HAYASHI Jun
    Studies of the highly efficient and clean combustion, the plasma assisted combustion/ignition, the utilization of biomass, the ammonia combustion as an energy carrier, the effective use of combustion field are conducted in the combustion engineering laboratory of Osaka university.

    Micro Thermal Engineering Subarea

    Professor SHIBAHARA Masahiko    Assistant Professor UEKI Yoshitaka   Assistant Professor FUJIWARA Kunio
    In our laboratory, we conduct investigations based on thermal engineering, including heat transfer, molecular thermal engineering, thermofluid engineering, and combustion engineering, in order to contribute to saving energy, reducing environmental pollution, and developing new technologies.
    To make the contribution, we mainly employ computer simulation, but also perform experimental validation and development.
