To study the three-nucleon force (3NF) effects without ambiguities from the Coulomb effect, the differential cross sections and the vector analyzing powers for the nd elastic scattering at En = 245 MeV have been measured at θcm = 85° - 180°. The data are compared to the results of Faddeev calculations using modern nucleon-nucleon (NN) forces with and without 3NF. Additionally we have a plan to extend our measurement to the forward angular region where the Coulomb effect is expected to be large. We carried out the test experiment and measured the differential cross sections at θcm = 21°.
