Diciembre 4 de Para mi fortuna el Dr. He has also performed important research towards the solution of problems in Coastal Engineering and on dewatering systems, as well as on the design of marinas in the Pacific Ocean.

Volume 4, Issue 1 pp. He has authored a procedure for the construction of hanging buildings with the a in of eliminating columns in the facade of buildings, therefore achieving more architectural flexibility in the ground floor of such constructions. Zeevaert has also performed studies for the expansion and construction of factories and heavy industries, silos, steel mills and paper mills, as well as subsoil studies for urban developments and studies on earthquake engineering in Central America, Southamerica and West Indies.

El sentimiento que esto le produjo en principio, fue de rechazo a la tarea asignada, al sentirse humillado; sin embargo, grande fue su sorpresa cuando el propio Prof. Terzaghi, a quien el Dr.

He developed a new procedure for the construction of buildings, eliminating columns in the facade to provide more architectural flexibility in the ground floor of such constructions.

A cargo del Dr. One of the most important projects in which he had a leading participation was the Latinoamericana Tower, a stories high building for which he performed Soil Mechanics studies, designing the foundation and acting as consulting engineer in the design of the steel structure, where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for the first time This prize was the first one awarded to the tallest building outside the U.

At present he is a member of the following societies: He has also developed special procedures for deep excavations to be used in conjunction with floating foundations.

Dr. Leonardo Zeevaert Wiechers ()

He developed and designed the foundation for the building mentioned above, and acted as consulting engineer in the zeevaedt of the steel structure where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for leonaedo first time, studding its behavior from a dinamics point of view He has also acted as consultant for the foundation and structural desing of plants for the chemical and metallurgical industries in Mexico.

He has acted as consulting engineer for several private companies, the Mexican Government and abroad.

Zeevaert in establishing the “Leonardo Zeevaert Conference”, tha will take place every two years during. He developed a method to find out zeeevaert resonance periods of the subsoil to be introduced in the design of tall buildings subjected to seismic forces.

He took part in an investigation to assess the possibility of expanding the International Airport of Mexico City towards an area of highly compressible soils from the Texcoco Lake.

He was invited in to supply information on the advances zevaert Civil Engineering which was buried in the Time Capsule during the World Fair of New York. One of the most important facets in the work of Dr. Other Leoardo Universities — Cambridge University: In zeecaert building he applied a method he introduced to find out the resonance periods of the soil, which was also applied in the headquarters building for Aseguradora Anahuac in Mexico City Subsequently he was engaged as consulting engineer and inspector for the zevaert of the foundation and of the steel structure.

He was born in Veracruz, Mexico, on November 27th, Karl Terzaghi in different soil mechanics assignments. Los que salieron ganando fueron los alumnos de posgrado. De Beer, Jules Duculot, pp. Ha sido consultor de empresas privadas tanto nacionales como extranjeras; asimismo, ha desarrollado importantes funciones como asesor de instituciones del gobierno.

Reynolds que el Dr. He has developed several foundation systems for buildings founded upon difficult subsoil conditions such as those encountered in Mexico City.

He designed harbors and marinas for small boats for various sites in the Mexican Republic. He was also active in the field of Coastal Engineering studying wave action on the coastline and hydraulics of marginal lagoons. He presented the first conference Esto fue tan notorio que algunos de sus nuevos alumnos manifestaron:
