Innovative Structural Materials for improving efficiency of energy generation and consumption
Project name:Structural Materials for Innovation (FY2014-2018)
In order to improve the efficiency of energy generation and consumption mainly in transportation and energy industries such as aviation and electric power, CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics), alloys, intermetallic compounds, and CMC (ceramics matrix composites) are being developed, achieving less weight, higher heat resistance, and less manufacturing cost. Besides, MI (materials integration), a computational system for accelerating materials R&D, is being developed.
