About Niclas Strömberg

Niclas Strömberg is professor in mechanical engineering and he has many years of experience of research in computational mechanics and design optimization. Currently, much of his research concerns how to improve design optimization for additive manufacturing by using methods from machine learning and how to optimize lattice structures for additive manufacturing.

Research

Niclas Strömberg began his research career in 1993 as a doctoral student at the Institute of Technology at Linköping University, developing models and computational methods for contact problems involving friction, wear and heat generation. After his PhD in 1997, he continued this work, together with two new doctoral students, by developing models and computational methods for fretting fatigue and gear dynamics. In 2005, he was recruited to Jönköping School of Engineering to structure activities within computational mechanics and design optimization. In his role as head of research, he initiated along with five doctoral students, research within design optimization (topology optimization, metamodel-based design optimization and optimization with uncertainties) and thermomechanical simulation of residual stresses in castings, while research with contact mechanics continued with the study of thermal stresses in brake discs.

At Örebro University, Niclas Strömberg has focused his research on design optimization for additive manufacturing, in particular on improving the design optimization process by using methods from machine learning, but also on how to functional grade lattice structures by design optimization.

Teaching

Niclas Strömberg has long experience in teaching different engineering mechanics courses, both on bachelor and master level. Niclas has also given Ph.D. course within the field of engineering mechanics. At Örebro University he teaches at the on the Master of Science programme in Industrial Engineering and Management as well as on the Bachelor programme in Mechanical Engineering. He is the examinator and lecturer of the following courses:

·        MT502G Mechanics for MSc in Engineering, 7.5 credits

·        MT504G Solid mechanics for MSc in Engineering, 7.5 credits

·        MT506G Machine elements for MSc in Engineering, 7.5 credits

·        MT117G Finite element analysis, 7.5 credits

Niclas is also planning to give a new advanced course on Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis and Design optimization starting in autumn 2021.

Miscellaneous

In addition to his academic career, Niclas Strömberg has experience working as a mechanical engineer at ABB Atom, Saab, ERAB (now Dynamore) and IKEA.
