Martin Jacobs


Martin is a Principal Hydraulics Engineer at pitt&sherry. His experience covers almost three decades in civil engineering consultancy in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and UK. Martin’s projects cover a broad spectrum from single-lot domestic developments to multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects (e.g. Pacific Highway, Ipswich Motorway, Hong Kong International Airport).

In recent years he has championed the assessment of scour using shear stresses, particularly in the design of grass and rock lined drainage channels. Martin has hands-on experience with many of the softwares and tools used in drainage design, including 12d and many commonly used hydrological and hydraulic models. He has contributed to the new DTMR Bridge Scour Manual providing specialist knowledge of the use of computation fluid dynamic (CFD) or 3D modelling as a tool to investigate bridge scour, and to design appropriate scour protection measures.
