Welcome to Matsumoto Lab
ResearchComputer simulations are widely used in the design and developement processes of devices, machineries, structures, etc., to predict their performance and physical behaviors. Since more and more complicated computation models and accurate simulations are demanded, developement of advanced computation techniques for more complicated physical phenomena and fast computation algorithms for large degrees of freedoms are getting important. Our research themes are concerned with devlopment of advanced numerical methods and their applications to designs of sophisticated devices and structures using the developed numerical methods. The finite element method and boundary element method are mainly foces on as the computational approaches. The boundary element method requires only the boundary meshing. The drawbacks that existed intrinsically in the BEM has been resolved as the consequence of the emergence of fast computation algorithms based on the multipole expansion of the fundamental solution. Therefore, not only the finite element method but also the boundary element method is now one of the strong simulation tools in the computer-aided engineering, particulary in shape and toplogy optimization problems that require re-meshings through optimization processes. The followings are some of the topics we are currently coping with.
