21Functional Machinery and MechanicsEngineering composite material structures that are stronger, lighter, and easier to recycleDepartment of Machinery and RoboticsAs the only facility of its kind dedicated to applied fiber mechanics research in Japan, my lab is currently engaged in research and development of optimal high-relative-strength and multi-function fiber structures as well as fiber-reinforced plastics and fiber-reinforced thermoplastics (FRPs and FRTPs). We have been successfully in developing fiber-reinforced plastics that exhibit high relative strength and strong erosion resistance, as well as low-cost FRP recycling methods characterized by a high recovery rate.We are also conducting research and development into a highly rigid and super-light FRP that has a strengthened web structure inspired by bamboo bers.My lab is working to develop a hybrid super-ber and carbon-ber FRP structure that exhibits excellent buering properties and impact strength.Professor Bao took his current position in 2013 after serving in the Faculty of Textile Science and Technology at Shinshu University as an assistant professor, senior assistant professor, and associate professor. His areas of research are applied ber mechanics and composite material engineering, including development of FRP using carbon and super-bers.Composite materials are being used in an increasingly broad range of applications. CFRPs comprise nearly 90% of the fuselage and wings of the recently developed Boeing 787 aircraft. Use of FRPs is also accelerating in products such as cars and windmills.Outlook for researchGraduates are primarily employed by aircraft and automobile manufacturers in Japan and internationally.Outlook for students after graduationLimin BaoProfessorImpact characteristicsFunctional Machinery and MechanicsResearching thermo-fluid engineering to support industry and build the future, from energy to the environmentDepartment of Machinery and RoboticsElectrical power plants burn fossil fuels and run steam turbines to generate electrical energy, but 60% of the combustion energy is exhausted to the sea. I am pursuing research to increase the conversion efficiency of such plants and to utilize the exhausted heat. I am also engaged in research into cleaning pollutant gases, which are a significant environmental problem.Nobuhiro HimenoProfessorMy lab is working to develop a high-performance cleaning system that instantly removes dust, contaminant gases, and foul-smelling components from the emissions of factories and garbage collection facilities.Professor Himeno joined the Faculty of Textile Science and Technology at Shinshu University in 1989 after completing a master's program at the Tokyo Institute of Technology and working as an assistant professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology School of Engineering. His areas of research include thermo-uid engineering, energy conversion and component technologies, heat storage technology, measurement of thermophysical properties, and environmental cleaning technology.My lab works to develop important fundamental technologies for industry and society, including high-eciency heat storage systems, and to conduct research into heat pump systems, methods for measuring the thermophysical properties of newly designed materials, and highly ecient insulation materials.Outlook for researchGraduates are active as thermo-uid engineers working to design and build energy-related equipment and engines in the power, heavy industry, and automotive industries, as well as a wide array of other elds.Outlook for students after graduationXY01-1-0.500.51Numerical analysis of the ow around blades is important in analyzing turbine performance.Heat transfer analysis in the areas behind shock waves is important in the design of turbines and spacecraft reentering the atmosphere.衝撃波分子振動緩和領域a shock wavemolecular vibrationrelaxation zone
