Energy Conversion
* Thermal Energy Conversion
* Conversion Systems
With the objective of unifying fundamental theories on energy conversion and transportation, functional design and constitutive elements of systems, and investigating safety and highlyefficient energy conversion systems in harmony with the environment, the foundation and methodology of the related evaluation, design and control are being studied.
Design for Energy
* Materials Design for Energy
* Design for Functional
In order to convert, transport and store energy with high efficiency, areas of study include the functions to be embodied in a variety of machines and their composed systems, the principles for the diversification of energy conversion, constitutive materials for hardware systems, the design of associated machineries and software, and the foundation and application of their safety and reliability.
Functional Energy
* Advanced Energy Conversion
* Highly Qualified Energy
* Functional Energy Conversion
In order to investigate highly-efficient safety energy conversion processes in harmony with the environment and to build systems, areas of study include the establishment of theories, application/evaluation and functional conversion systems from the manifold perspectives of fusion science and engineering, optical science, thermochemistry, advanced atomic energy, energy materials science and engineering, etc.
Innovative Energy
(visiting professors) The main concerns in the Chair are in fields of the establishment of life assessment of energyrelated machinery and the development of optimum processing for welded structures. Education and research activities in such fields are pursued based on materials science and mechanics of materials.
