Research Contents

We use computer engineering, specifically powder simulations, to conduct research on the production of high-function materials involving powder particles and on the design of powder particle systems. In particular, we introduce the concept of systems engineering to create optimum designs for high-function powder materials formed by the aggregation of numerous particles with varying chemical compositions, the production processes for these materials, and the devices that use these materials.
