Peter’s interests are numerical modeling of coupled acoustics and vibrations phenomena, with special focus on finite element modeling of damping mechanisms and efficient computational methods for highly damped, layered structures. He has been involved in a number of pioneering vibroacoustic modeling efforts, the Noise Attenuation for Launchers project (funded by Esa estec) which resulted in two large scale models for space craft fairings of ARIANE 4 and 5 types with satellite dynamic response included; the ASANCA project (funded by the European Commission) which resulted in a model of a Saab 340 fuselage cabin with interior trim modeled and a demonstration of the applicability of finite element modeling for the transmission of noise and vibrations in such a system; the BRAIN project (funded by the European Commission) which resulted in an important step forward in the elastoacoustic modelling of fibrous porous materials in the noise and vibration transmission through double wall structures with sound proofing.
Recently he has embarked on the path towards sustainable design based on multi-functional structural components which are optimised to satisfy contradictory functional requirements, e.g. structural load carrying paired with acoustic performance at lowest weight, complexity, cost, environmental impact etc. This is part of the activities within the Centre for ECO2 Vehicle Design.
