Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is an essential and fundamental field for all the industries because it plays a key role in developing all kinds of tangible products and their interfaces. Students in our department are to acquire a wide range of skills through lectures and practical training. The graduate program is arranged with the following six laboratories.

Fields of Research

Research topics range from material-related basic areas to heat engineering (internal combustion engines), and material engineering.

Engine Reseach

In order to improve the gasoline and diesel engine performance for output, thermal efficiency and low exhaust emissions, advanced sensing systems and analyzing methods are applied to develop the engines of the future.

Machine Dynamics

The behavior of vehicle occupants in traffic accidents, which is one of the most important social issues in the world, is researched. Computer analysis by using MADYMO and experimental analysis by using small scale models is examined for the protection of vehicle occupants.

Fluid Engineering

Experimental research on new topics of flow visualization and micro-nano fluidics are performed, including heat and mass transfer, biomechanical flows, rotating flows, chemical reacting flows and micro-nano flows.

Strength of Materials

The strength and fracture of materials are experimentally and analytically studied for the design of automobiles, airplanes and so on. Furthermore, the reliability of airplane structure is estimated.

Engineering Material

We perform experimental researches on the development and evaluation of new functional materials made by powder metallurgy, evaluation of characteristics of fatigue strength in metallic materials and physical properties of polymer materials.

Surface Engineering and Machining

Our laboratory deals with the following researches; (1) Development of a new trivalent chromium plating process, (2) Study of ecological machining and, (3) Study of dental materials science and technology.
