Computational Structural Materials Design Group

Materials properties are highly depending on their microstructure. So we are applying various simulation techniques to materials phenomena to clarify the physics behind them and to predict the microstructure and properties of practical materials.

Specialized Research Field

To investigate various stages of phase transformation and micorstructure formation in materials from atomic to macroscopic point of view, we use a variety of simulation techniques such as ab initio, molecular dynamics (MD), Monte Carlo (MC) method, cluster variation method, CALPHAD method, and phase-field method.
