Outline Activities
The fields of researches are "Machine elements and Design".
My main study are, 1) friction and wear of valve materials in hydrogen ,
2)fretting wear in hydrogen environment,
3)the observation of oil-filem behavior in oscillatory rolling motion.
When this resurch is done with the students, it is not only a technique like mechanical engineering, and the knowledge of every field if adopted and carried out. I want to provide the data which could get it in this experiment as a thing which is useful for the world.

    1998.03Experimental Study on the Crack Propagation of Pitting Crack using Test Rollers with Fretting Cracks In order to study the propagation of pitting cracks, I devised an experimental method, in which a pair of cracks generated on a roller spescimen which will be used in a two-roller test by a fretting fatigue test. The cracks generated in the fretting test are typical conical ones observed commonly in the point contact, and two cracks having simillar shape and lengthbut their inclined angles to the surface were opposite are generated. Employing the roller spescimens having a pair of the cracks in a two roller test, the effects of oil penetration and plastic flow on the propagation of a pitting crack are reported..
