About Us

Our world is filled with materials that have a wide variety of properties and functions. How does this seemingly infinite diversity of material functions come about? In fact, the microscopic structure and mechanical state of materials are the key. Once we understand this, we can freely change the functions of materials (just like alchemy).

Through the development of physical and mechanical theories that describe the material world, from mechanics of materials and continuum mechanics, which play a fundamental role in manufacturing, to state-of-the-art computational science and condensed matter physics, and their numerical analysis techniques, we are conducting research to uncover the hidden mechanical laws of the material world and to mechanically create and design advanced material functions that overturn conventional wisdom. In this way, we are promoting research to create and design advanced material functions mechanically.
