Material strength Laboratory

Explore mechanical joining techniques for more reliable multi-material structures!

Multi-material structures have been promoted in the field of transport equipment including cars, trains and airplanes. Multi-material structures can design lightweight and high-strength structures by using various materials appropriately. Those structures need highly-reliable techniques to join dissimilar materials like dissimilar metals and resin & metals. To realize multi-material structures, we focus on research of mechanical joint methods such as bolted joint including bolt & nut and high-speed nailing joint to drive nails into metals with high speed.
