He was the director of Materials System Research Laboratory at KIT from 1981 to 2020 and now he is an adviser of this laboratory. His research is focused on the prediction methodology for the long-term fatigue life of polymer composites and structures based on the time-temperature superposition principle for the viscoelasticity of polymer matrix. For 50 years, he has been publishing the research works for academic journals. His recent and important accomplishment is to have published a book entitled “Durability of Fiber-Reinforced Polymers” from Wiley-VCH with Professor Masayuki Nakada of KIT. He has been an active member of SEM since 1980. He conducted Composites Durability Workshops with Professors Stephen Tsai and Richard Christensen of Stanford University for 20 times from 1998 to 2015. He is funded from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) and other Japan government organizations.
