Om Asim Rashid

Asim Rashid is researcher in the area of design for additive manufacturing (DFAM). He has many years of experience working with nonlinear problems using finite element analysis. His previous research includes investigation of disc brake problems using simulation tools. His research interests include structures consisting of triply periodic minimal surfaces and residual stresses in additively manufactured parts.

He has a Master of Science degree in Product Development and Materials Engineering from Jönköping University. After finishing his masters studies in 2010, he worked as a PhD researcher at School of Engineering, Jönköping University.



Disc brakes are a crucial part of a vehicle. They slow or stop a vehicle by converting the kinetic energy into heat. This heat causes the disc surface temperature to rise in a short period of time. Due to the severe working conditions during operation, cracks develop on the friction surface.  Simulation of residual stresses  causing the initiation of these cracks with reasonable computational resources was one of the main goals of Asim’s research as a PhD researcher. Currently he is working on simulation of residual stresses in additively manufactured parts.
