Re: Response spectra in seismic design.

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
William:
Sometime ago we discussed it and we concluded that the list must be in
English.
I would be very happy to write in Spanish to any engineer
that request that from me, but to his personal e-mail.
I am structural engineer graduated 37 years ago and I have a lot of personal
experience in seismic design of tall buildings, industrial structures,
bridges and ports. I wrote my thesis about analysis with finite elements of
buckling and vibrations of structures (eigenvalue problems) , in 1967,
working with a document of Connors (MIT) (there were no books about finite
elements in that time), and with the help of  PhD Ray Clough and PhD J.M.
Roesset, two of the pioneers in that development.
But I think that structural engineering and quantum physics is a lot easier
than  learning English. I think American boys are very clever because they
speak English when they are only one or two years old.
Best regards
Alberto Guida
