  • Prof. Hideo MIURA

    Major Field:
    The strength and reliability of nano and micro scale material components
    Research Area:
    I aim to develop high-accuracy and high-speed methodologies for the tight-binding molecular dynamics and first-principles simulation and to clarify the electronic- and atomic-level complicated phenomena by computational simulation. Especially, in ordet to solve the energy, environmental, and resource problems, I make challenges to elucidate the chemical reaction dynamics in the fuel and solar cells, to clarify the mechanism of the chemical mechanical polishing process, and to design alternative materials and curtailment technologies for the rare earth metals.

  • Visiting Prof. Isamu NONAKA

    Major Field:
    Fatigue, high temperature strength (creep) and residual life evaluation in high temperature components
    Research Area:
    In order to operate the high temperature components such as fossil power plant safely, the degradation mechanisms of the material e.g. fatigue and creep have been clarified and the residual rife evaluation procedures have been developed. Recent main researches are to make clear the very high cycle fatigue phenomena and to develop the small punch creep test procedure for residual life evaluation.

  • Associate Prof. Ken SUZUKI

    Major Field:
    Computational science based material engineering
    Research Area:
    For the accurate understanding of the multi-physics phenomena including chemical reactions in the mechanical engineering field, first-principles molecular dynamics simulation is essential and however computational time is a big problem. Then, I aim to develop highly-accurate and high-speed first-principles molecular dynamics method using new simulation theory and parallelization technique. Moreover, I intend to apply the above simulation method to the development of solar cell, fuel cell, and low-friction material and to contribute to the realization of low-carbon society.

  • Assistant Prof. Theresa DAVEY

    Major Field:
    Computational materials science, computational thermodynamics
    Research Area:
    My main research area is computational thermodynamics of condensed matter, in particular the development of techniques to use first principles calculations in CALPHAD-type thermodynamic databases. Improvements to first principles calculations methods in recent decades have provided new insight to many materials, but while the CALPHAD approach is extremely powerful in materials design, it has limitations for use with first principles calculations. I aim to develop methods that are able to make better use of such calculated data, considering alloy or ceramic systems as prototypes. Projects have previously considered improvements to the description to point defects and configurational entropy.

  • Assistant Prof. Arkapol SAENDEEJING

    Major Field:
    Computational material science, Computational thermodynamics, and Calculation of phase diagram (CALPHAD).
    Research Area:
    My interest is on the computational thermodynamics focusing on the phase stability and thermodynamic properties of solid phases. By employing first-principles calculation based on density functional theory, several thermodynamic properties of the material can be evaluated at 0K and finite temperature. The data can then be input in the highly-robust CALPHAD approach to develop the thermodynamic database which enable very efficient industrial-scale alloys development process.
