Mechanical Systems Engineering
I am a professor at the Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering, Daido University, Japan. I graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, in 1981 and obtained my doctorate for my research on the numerical simulation of three-dimensional rolling from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1990. I have been conducting research on the numerical modeling of various phenomena that appear in the metal-forming processes and numerical modeling of ductile fracture behavior. Furthermore, I am the first author of more than 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers. In addition, I am the recipient of the JSTP Medal for Scientific Achievement from the Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity and the Scientific Achievement Commemorative Prize from the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan.
