Summary My research theme is strength enhancement and structural refinement of casting materials. One of my research efforts is the development of structural refinement techniques for industrially important cast iron, which is widely used for automobile parts. The objective of this research is, by structural refinement of cast iron, to reduce the chilling tendency (excessive hardening); prevent shrinkage cavities (remaining cavities), a typical defect of cast iron; and prevent chunky graphite formation, a typical abnormal graphite formation. As it is necessary to use high-strength cast iron materials for engines in order to increase their power, reduce their weight, and save energy, I am also engaged in enhancing the strength and improving the performance of these materials by an in-mold inoculation method.
