Our laboratory mainly dedicates to simulating numerical mechanical lubrication by using multiple physical quantities on micro-electromechanical systems, mechanical and biological systems. 
All the above include flight analysis, hard disk drive read-write heads, analysis of cooling fan bearings, hydrodynamic lubrication, non-contact shaft seals, Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB), heavy engine neck bearings, steady state of pore bearings and dynamic analysis, soft elastohydrodynamic lubrication analysis of contact lens and eyeball, electrostatic micro-motor analysis, ball screw thermal analysis calculation. 
Lubrication and friction are objects with relative motion between two surfaces. For example, the sliding and rolling between gears, gears, cam pairs, ball-bearings, and friction characteristics are all considered. In addition to general material applications, soft materials such as articular cartilage, eyelid-cornea, blood cells in capillaries, pleura-ribs, skin stratum corneum, finger wrinkle, protective gear wearing are studied through friction analysis, grasping ability analysis, friction and protective characteristics analysis.
