Welcome to KOYANAGI Laboratory
As the human culture has developed, it has undergone advancements from the Stone Age, through the Iron Age, to the 21st century, in which composite materials are in use. Koyanagi Laboratory mainly deals with high-specific-strength polymeric composite materials for the aerospace field and conducts mechanics-based studies and development of novel functional materials. Thermal and mechanical properties of composite materials and structures are evaluated experimentally and analytically for aircraft and spacecraft designs. We aim to improve material properties through the production of new composites.
