Structure and Control Laboratory

Structural Mechanics

Masahiro ARAI, Professor
Tadashige IKEDA, Associate Professor (ⅰ)Composite materials and structures. For example, (a) Multi-functional composites using smart materials (see(ii)), (b) processing and characterization of the composites
(ⅱ) Smart materials and structural systems: materials and structural systems with functions of sensors, actuators, and processors. For example, (a) Basic material tests and constitutive models of smart materials such as shape memory alloys and ferroelectric materials whose characteristics and shape change by electrical, magnetic, and thermal stimulation. (b) Passive and active control systems of vibration, sound, and shape using the smart materials. (c) Aircraft noise and drag reduction based on the smart structures
(ⅲ) Fluid-induced vibration: deformation and self-excited oscillation due to interaction between elastic deformation of a structure and force induced by a flow including separation, transition, and reattachment. For example, (a) fluid-induced vibration of aerospace vehicles and its control
