Research overview:
Polymeric materials are utilized widely in various fields, however, it remains to be their weak points that their fracture and fatigue properties are not grasped enough and they are less reliable due to their significant property being varied according to environments. In this study we aim to clarify the microscopic structures of polymeric material fracture and fatigue. And we also intend especially to clarify correlation between moisture and structural properties of polymeric material because of its moisture-absorption property.
