Robin Olsson

Adjungerad docent at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Material and Computational Mechanics

Robin Olsson has done research in composite mechanics since 1988, including work at the Swedish Aeronautical Research Institute and at Imperial College London. Since 2008 he works at Swerea SICOMP in Mölndal, and continuously collaborates with Chalmers and the industry in various projects on composite materials, particularly for future lightweight vehicles. Robin Olsson has a long experience in impact response and damage tolerance of composites, but has recently mainly worked on modelling composites in crash situations. In this area he supervises a number of PhD students at Chalmers.
