Peter is a partner at Opus International Consultants. He has considerable expertise as a mechanical engineer.
Peter's specialist areas include building and vehicle aerodynamics; tyre-road interactions; safety management of roads; assessments of pedestrian level wind flows and ground vibrations; and analysis of vehicle operating costs.
Peter has published widely in all these areas and has received two ACENZ Awards of Excellence for improved road asset management. International recognition for his research on tyre rolling and skid resistance led to Peter’s involvement in development work on the World Bank’s HDM model.
Currently Peter’s attention is focused on the development of robust crash prediction and pavement performance models to inform management of road infrastructure, and more accurate estimates of structures’ response to wind loading.
