About Dr. Peters

Professor Peters has been a member of the Washington University in St. Louis faculty since 1975. He joined Washington University after serving as an aerospace engineering professor at Georgia Tech. From 1969 to 1970, Professor Peters was an associate engineer at McDonnell Douglas Astronautics Co. in St. Louis after working as a research scientist in the Army Air Mobility R&D Laboratory.

Currently, Professor Peters is the Director of Washington University’s Center for Computational Mechanics and the Associate Director of Georgia Tech/Washington University Center of Excellence for Rotor Technology. He is also an adjunct professor at Georgia Tech.

Professor Peters’s research projects in rotor wake modeling seek to correctly model the dynamic motions that profoundly influence vehicle dynamics of airplane propellers, helicopters, and tilt rotors. His other research interests include aero elasticity modeling of helicopter rotors with unsteady aerodynamics and nonlinear structural deformations and response to stalling.
