We are conducting the following topics.
1. Fretting fatigue
Fretting fatigue of TI-6al-4V alloys, In-situ observations
2. Joint process and evaluations
Laser welding, FSW, FSP< bolted joints, SPR joint etc. Evaluations of strength is also conducted.
3. Mg alloys
Fatigue strengths of Mg-Al or Mg-Ca alloys are studied. SPS sintered mg alloys are fabricated.
Ti alloys and Hap coatings are studied for its biocompatibility and durability.
Novel process of making Hap coating are also investigated.
5. SCC bahavior of Stainless steels for Nuclear power plants
