Keio University

Fracture and Advanced Material Group

Welcome to Omiya Lab.!


We investigates fracture and strength of advanced materials, which cover wide range of applications, such as automobile, electronic devices, soft actuator, human dynamics, sport injuries, space elevator and so on.

"Material" is the origin of all products!


Fracture mechanics

Soft actuator

 - Measurements of fracture toughness for metals, polymers and composites

 - Fracture envelope of adhesive joints for automobile application

 - Fatigue life prediction

 - Numerical simulation for crack propagation

 - Ionic Polymer Metal Composite actuators

 - Polymer based soft actuators

LOAD Transfer analysis

SPORTS injury

space elevator

 - Load path analysis during car crash

 - Optimum structure design

 - Head protector for JUDO

 - Biomechanical simulation

 - Numerical simulation of tether dynamics

 - Optimum control design for space elevator
