Roger Lundén

Professor at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Dynamics

Roger Lundén is professor in railway mechanics. During the years 1997 - 2012 he was director of the Competence Centre CHARMEC and he continues being active in the leading and administration of the center. Scientifically, his research is in the field of theoretical and solid mechanics and specifically in the subfields dynamics, vibrations, material fatigue, thermal stresses, noise-related problems, contact mechanics and tribology. Related applications concern brakes for trains and trucks, railway wheelsets and wheel-rail interface problems. He is the supervisor of two PhD students and is examiner of one more.
