Previous Research Projects

Dr. Akira Tezuka is a Principal Researcher at Research Center for Ubiquitous MEMS and Micro Engineering in National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan. He is also a visiting researcher of Research into Artifacts, Center for Engineering at the University of Tokyo. He obtained BS at Univ. of Tokyo, MS at Univ. of Michigan, and PhD at Univ. of Tokyo, in the field of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics. Starting his career as a researcher in Hitachi Ltd., after the experience in Industrial Products Research Institute, Mechanical Engineering Laboratory(MEL), both in METI, and Stanford University as a visiting scholar, his current interest is a function based performance design flame work for product planning at early-stage design, including the gimplementationh of DfX methodology for high value products with the constrain of sustainable society/industry both in hardware and software senses, while his background research major is FEM based computational mechanics for the real application for manufacturing/design fields with the recognition of current computational mechanics limitations. He is a member of the executive councils of the Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science, a member of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers and a former member of the general councils of the International Association of Computational Mechanics.
