Projects|Material Solutions Center, Tohoku University(MaSC)

Tohoku University Material Solutions Center (MaSC) is a cooperative base between industry, academics and government that has been set up in a joint effort by Tohoku University and its Institute for Materials Research, Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advance Metals, and Institute of Fluid Science and uses grants for facilities expenses from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.


Aircraft Computational Science Project
In this research project, to keep and increase international competitiveness of our aircraft industry, we develop CAE technologies that realize low cost aircraft design and weight reduction using new materials and that enable multi-objective design optimization at a higher level with seamlessly coupled aerodynamic and structural analyses from the early phase of the design.
