Welcome to

Physical Metallurgy Lab!

Enhancement of strength of structural materials meets the requirements in many applications, and especially contributes to the improvement of the resource and energy problem from the body-in-white weight reduction of automobiles. To enhance deformability of structural materials without losing strength, our lab aim to develop a new structural materials with enhanced performance by characterizing defects, deformation, and fracture in structural metals and alloys with a help of data-driven material science.
