Peter Nilsson

Doctoral Student at Structural Engineering

Peter is an industrial doctoral student at the Division of Structural Engineering, in the researchgroup Lightweight Structures . The focus of his research is on the behaviour and strength of steel sandwich elements in bridge applications. The aim of his project is to develop this promising structural element to become an approved member of a bridge structure. Peter is an industrial PhD-student working part time as a structural engineer with focus on bridge design. He has done this since 2010. His professional focus has been on advanced FE-modelling and design of complex structures.
