Objectives

Materials System Research Laboratory was established as one of the laboratories of Kanazawa Institute of Technology on December 26 th in 1981. The objectives of this laboratory are as follows:

Materials System Design
Optimization of materials system treating material, process and structure in the same trend with the coordination of technology.

Man Materials System
System engineered approach integrating all components of global environment such as natural environment, social environment, resources and economic ambience.

Development of Materials
Development of materials for wide range of application for space, aeronautics, electric devices and others.


Activities

Publication of journal titled gMATERIALS SYSTEMh

gMATERIALS SYSTEMh is issued to provide the opportunity for presentation of resolution for concrete technological issue. Methodological exploration into optimization of materials system is sought in this journal. Volume 1 was issued in June of 1982. gMATERIALS SYSTEMh has been issued once a year. Technical Reports and Data Base for Office of Naval Research Project titled gLong-Term Durability and Damage Tolerance of Innovative Marine Compositesh reprinted from gMaterials System Volume 25, 2007 are attached here .

Holding Seminars
First seminar of Materials System Research Laboratory was held in January of 1987, 103 seminars have been held so far.

Organizing International Workshops
The first Composites Durability Workshop (CDW-1) was held at Kanazawa Institute of Technology (KIT) in 1998. CDW-3 and 5 were held at KIT Office in Tokyo in 2000 and 2002, respectively. CDW-15 were held at KIT in October, 2010. CDW-16 will be held in Seoul Natioanal University, Seoul, Korea from August 28 to August 30.
