Jonas W. Ringsberg0000-0001-6950-1864
Jonas Ringsberg is Professor in Marine Structures. He received his Master of Science (MSc) degree in Mechanical and Vehicular Engineering (1995) from Chalmers, degree in Licentiate Engineering in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering (1997) and degree in Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Solid mechanics (2000) from Chalmers. In 2004, he received the Docent degree (Associate Professor) in Applied Mechanics from Chalmers. He is head of Division of Marine Design, head of the groups Marine Structures and Maritime Management. He is responsible for the theme area Cargo Ship in the maritime competence centre Lighthouse, and he is also working within the Ocean Energy Centre on Chalmers. Research his focused on computational mechanics, material mechanics and reliability analysis. His research interest and experience comprises material mechanics, fatigue (HCF, LCF, fracture mechanics, multiaxial fatigue, residual stresses and welds), probabilistic methods and risk analysis, composite mechanics and materials, and Arctic engineering. Research activities are applied on collision and grounding, lightweight structures, fatigue of marine structures, dynamic response, ocean energy harvesting, risk analysis and risk assessment, Arctic engineering, and transport efficiency, safety and security. He is member of the Lighthouse Scientific Board, in the Nordic Committee for Safety at Sea, member of The Editorial Board of The International Journal of Ships and Offshore Structures, member of the Steering Committee of Marstruct Virtual Institute, The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and in The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). He is member of The International Ship and Offshore Structures Committee (ISSC): the Technical Committee III.2 (Fatigue and Fracture) between 2006 and 2012, followed by the Technical Committee II.1 (Quasi-static response) from 2012 acting as the committee chair.
