Welcome to Computational Mechanics Laboratory at Shinshu University.
We develop topology optimization, which is a type of structural optimization,
and study structural design that exhibits new and extraordinary functions.
We propose effective solutions to difficult properties that appear in structural optimization such as multi-modality, dependency between design variables,
multi-dimensional design variable space, and high physical property value ratio.
By applying it to cutting-edge physical problems such as metadevice design, we demonstrate its effectiveness and
aim at ultimate control of wave systems (optical/electromagnetic, acoustic)
and diffusive systems (thermal/electrical).
