Biography

Peter Wellens studied Civil Engineering in Delft. His thesis project was about wave energy. He conducted his PhD project at Marine Technology, section Ship Hydromechanics, in collaboration with Computational Mechanics at the University of Groningen. The topic of the project was (generating) absorbing boundary conditions for waves in numerical domains. These boundary conditions are essential for ensuring quality in longer simulations with free surface waves and structures.
After his PhD project Peter started working at Deltares. He first worked as researcher in the department Coastal Structures and Waves. Later, he became head of department of the group working on the experimental facilities.
Peter has rejoined Delft University of Technology in 2016, as an Assistant Professor. He teaches about nonlinear wave loads on structures at sea. His research is about modelling extreme wave loads on ships at moderate forward speed.
