Abstract : Two labs were visited at the University of Tohoku: the Materials Design by Computer Simulation Laboratory of Professor Yoshiyuki Kawazoe, in the Institute of Materials Research; and the Structural Materials Laboratory of Prof Hiroshi Oikawa, of the Department of Material Science. The Computer Simulation Lab, recently armed with arguably the most powerful supercomputer CPU in the world, and specifically configured to work material science and design problems, is attempting to position itself for a future leadership role in the field of computational material science. Professor Olkawa's Structural Materials Group continues to explore the high temperature deformation behavior of titanium alloys, with most of his current work aimed at understanding the high temperature deformation of the intermetallic compound, gamma TiAl. His results on the constitutive effect of microstructural features offer insight into improving the high temperature performance of this emerging class of structural materials. (MM)
