    Process Mechanics Area

    Professor MOCHIZUKI Masahito   Associate Professor MIKAMI Yoshiki   Assistant Professor OKANO Shigetaka
    Welding and joining, cutting, machining —essential processing technologies for manufacturing—inevitably generate residual stresses and distortions, and consequently control the performance and integrity of products and structures. “Process Mechanics” is a new discipline to investigate the mechanical behavior related to manufacturing processes on the basis of materials science, physics of processes, and mechanics. Our major approaches are the development of simulation models for manufacturing processes and their application to the prediction of mechanical properties, design, and integrity assessment of components and structures.

    Structural Integrity Evaluation Area

    Professor OHATA Mitsuru   Professor MINAMI Fumiyoshi(Adjunct)   Assistant Professor SHOUJI Hiroto
    A procedure has been developing for the transferability analysis of the micro-structural properties of materials, strength of welded joints and the fracture performance of structural components, which leads to advanced multi-scale design of infrastructures as well as industrial goods. The study includes the mechanics and mechanism of ductile damage, brittle fracture and fatigue of structural steels.
    A computational damage simulation with modeling damage and fracture is on going, which enables the link between the materials properties and the structural integrity in terms of the resistance to unstable fracture, crack growth resistance, ductile instability and fatigue fracture.

    Design and Reliability Area
