Region of Research

 In order to further reduce the weight, extend the life, and improve the strength and toughness of structural materials, it is essential to establish the reliability of each material including lightweight materials and actively promote the multi-materialization of members that consist of the right materials in the right place. In the NEDO-ISMA project, Osaka University has conducted "Fundamental Research for Friction Joining (46)", " Fundamental Research on Multi-Material Joining Technologies (64)", and “Development of Joint Performance Data-Base for Joining Technologies of Multi-Materials (64-B)". A new framework is needed to effectively utilize the new joining methods and the data created and accumulated through these technological developments. Using the new joining methods and analysis technologies developed in Japan as seeds, the “Joining Technology Hub” has been formed for continuing to utilize the current technologies and knowledge promoting research activities with the aim of practical applications in collaboration with industries and academic institutions.

Current Research Subjects

  • Summarizing the joining process technologies (development of new joining methods and elucidation of joining mechanism), evaluation analysis technology (joint characteristic evaluation, phenomenon analysis by in-situ observation), accumulating data from the joint research, and maintenance for practical applications
  • Introduction of seed technology and equipment
  • Planning of joint research for practical applications with companies by the joint research / startup follow-up window
  • Implementation of joint research with companies and academic institutions
  • Establishment of collaborative research institutes and joint research laboratories, and formation of a consortium
