Mobility is a concept that encompasses all systems that expand the spatial area of human activity, including automobiles, ships, and aircraft. Structural materials used in mobility play a key role in ensuring passenger safety and are selected considering cost and recyclability as well as mechanical reliability. Steel materials have been used most widely as the most important material for mobility systems that have made remarkable progress along with science and technology because their performance, economy, and eco-friendliness are overwhelmingly superior to other materials. As human activity gradually expands into extreme areas, the demand for mobility materials that dramatically exceed the existing performance is increasing.
In response to these needs, the Graduate School of Steel and Energy Materials conducts a wide range of research from the theoretical approach at the atomic level to the reliability analysis at the level of actual parts to develop the next-generation steel materials that can make the future of mankind safer, more prosperous and cleaner. We are working hard on development.
