Analyzing the relationships between micro- and macro-behavior in materials by numerical simulation
My research efforts are concentrated on analyzing the relationships between micro- and macro-behavior in materials by numerical simulation, with the aim of promoting the practical application of large shape memory alloy elements where complex thermal and dynamic loads are involved. In highly accurate pressing and injection molding, deformation of the die must be taken into account. I am therefore using numerical simulation to analyze the temperature distribution and thermal deformation of the die during processing. I am also researching techniques to improve the processing accuracy by optimizing the temperature of the die, the layout of parts and the processes.
My goal is for students and instructors to learn together in order to create graduates who have thoroughly mastered the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and, based on that knowledge, are able to learn and think for themselves.
