The reason for choosing Japan to conduct research
Japanese researchers are diligent and rigorous in their research. Through the frequent discussion with them, the fellows can learn a lot.
Micro- to Macroscopic deformation behavior of various polymer composites has been evaluated with a computational tool established with the homogenization method and the finite element method. Many valuable approaches to improve the strength or the toughness of such composites have been suggested.
Advice to new fellows
Respect your host and make deep discussions with him frequently.
