Having completed a Royal Society International Research Fellowship, Peter joined Newcastle University in 1994 as a Lecturer in Structural Engineering. His research and teaching were concentrated on computational mechanics.
With a background firmly set in the mathematical aspects of computational mechanics, the need to develop materials testing research was not immediately obvious. This changed with the desire to verify this work in the simulation of textile and rigid composite structures. The requirement for high fidelity material properties has now led to the development of testing technologies and clearer understanding of material behaviour.
More importantly, the applied sciences of computational mechanics and material characterisation are now seen to be intrinsically linked in the research we undertake within the Group, with each being equally important and essential.
Peter teaches computational mechanics and experimental aspects of composites at 4th year / postgraduate level.

Professor Peter Gosling is Professor of Computational Structural Mechanics.
He specialises in the optimisation and reliability of composite materials and structures. His research has led to improved algorithms and formulations through the rigorous application of mathematical principles developed as part of the numerical representation of geometrically non-linear (thin-walled and flexible) structures and structural systems. He has developed advanced structural analysis and optimisation techniques with particular emphasis on material and geometric non-linearity for composites and sandwich panels.
Professor Gosling has an international reputation for his work in the field of computational structural mechanics for the simulation of composite materials and structures established in a holistic stochastic-based framework encompassing experimentation through to simulation. The integration of materials design and testing into his computational mechanics research through the application of reliability analysis techniques has led to robust design optimal solutions and material analysis for composite materials and sandwich panel structures.
He is a principal member of the International Society for Structural and Multi-disciplinary Optimization (ISSMO) and convenor of the non-linear finite element analysis working group. He is one of the founding members of the Association for Multi-disciplinary Optimization (UK). Professor Gosling is chairman of the National Association for Finite Element Methods and Standards (NAFEMS) working group on computational structural mechanics and of the TENSInet working group on analysis and materials, and is an international member of the AIAA Technical Committee on Multi-disciplinary Optimisation. He also serves as an EPSRC peer review college member and CEN248 & CEN250 European Standards Committees for technical textiles.
