World Congress on Computational Mechanics


Hiroyuki Yamamoto

Nagoya University

Graduate School of Bioagricultural Sciences


A professor of Wood Sciences, Department of Forest and Environmental Resources Sciences. Yamamoto's research topics are to elucidate (1) generation mechanism of wood physical/mechanical properties at macroscopic level from the viewpoint of cell wall microscopic structure, (2) Processing problems due to residual stress in a tree log , and (3) Biomechanics of growing tree stem. Research tools are (1) mechanics (elasticity) (2) cell wall anatomy (3) stress measurement and analysis (4) application of diffraction technique to cellulose crystal in the cell wall.
