Overview of Research Group, Goals and Purposes:

The rational design of machines and structures is required for construction of a secure and safe society. For that reason, it is important to grasp the distribution of the stress/strain in engineering components. Purpose of this research group is to develop the high accuracy nondestructive evaluation techniques to measure the stress/strain in complex components. Furthermore, defects and deformation damage of components in service are evaluated. These techniques contribute to the development of the design method of structures and new materials.
