Jonas Ringsberg is the acting deputy head of department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, and the head of Division of Marine Technology at Chalmers. He teaches and is responsible for courses in the international master’s programme in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering (MPNAV) on Chalmers. Besides his own research, he supervises and is the examiner of several PhD students. Research is focussed 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, marine renewable energy, risk analysis and risk assessment, Arctic engineering, ship energy and transport efficiency modelling, safety and security.Jonas Ringsberg’s research is of interest and is connected to Chalmers Area of Advance Energy, Materials Science and Transport. He is member of the Nordic Committee for Safety at Sea, Associate Editor of the Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering, member of The Editorial Boards of “The International Journal of Ships and Offshore Structures” and “Marine Structures”, member of the Steering Committee of Marstruct Virtual Institute, member of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and in The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). Jonas Ringsberg is also 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.
