Establishment of new materials design principles

Toward the establishment of principles for leading-edge microstructure control of materials

The key to material properties is the establishment of principles for leading-edge microstructure control of materials. For this purpose, we will form alliances bringing together the top leaders at the University, and accelerate research and development on innovative structural materials that will contribute to a wide range of fields, including a safe and secure society, high energy efficiency, and bio-applications.

From improvement of materials properties to creation of innovative functions in a broad range of structural materials

Through multi-scale application of computational science, microstructure analysis, and process design, we seek to extend the basic principles of microstructure control of materials and accelerate research and development on a wide range of innovative structural materials, from improvement of properties demanded in structural materials such as high strength and toughness, high heat resistance, and high corrosion resistance, to the expression of functions derived from the structures such as shape memory, super elasticity, and modulus design. We will aim to establish new principles of microstructure control for materials design supporting Japan’s manufacturing technology.
