Octubre 25 de In this building he applied a method he introduced to find out the resonance periods of the zeevaer, which was also applied in the headquarters building for Aseguradora Anahuac in Mexico City Leonardo Zeevaert in recognition of his life and work, and achievements in his professional practice, as professor and consulting engineer and for the developments in the loenardo of soil mechanics and foundation engineering. Other Leading Universities — Cambridge University: Si la obra del Dr.

Ha sido consultor de empresas privadas tanto nacionales como leonarod asimismo, ha desarrollado importantes funciones como asesor de instituciones del gobierno.

Para mi fortuna el Dr.

Terzaghi y la que ahora, quienes compartimos sus puntos de vista, estamos obligados a continuar y a hacerla crecer, convencidos de que de esa manera nos acercamos a la verdad. He has also acted as consultant for the foundation and structural desing of plants for the chemical and metallurgical industries in Mexico. This prize was the first one awarded to the tallest building outside the U.

Terzaghi in the investigation of the stability of hydraulic fill dams built at the turn of the century by the Mexican Light and Power Company. He pursued graduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he majored in structural engineering and was awarded the degree of Master in Civil Engineering in Volume 4, Issue 1 pp.

He developed a method to find out the resonance periods of the subsoil to be introduced in the design of tall buildings subjected to seismic forces. Karl Terzaghi to work with him in soil mechanics assignments at the University of Illinois where he held the post of Visiting Research Fellow in structural engineering and where he received the degree of Doctor in Philosophy Ph. He has been professor of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering at the School of Engineering of the National University of Mexico sinceas well as lecturer on the same subject and on Structural, Architectural and Earthquake Engineering.

He has performed the analysis and design of foundations for turbogerators at several industrial plants and has provided advice for the foundation design of an atomic energy plant in San Jose, California, U. Conferencia Leonardo Zeevaert W.

He was born in Veracruz, Mexico, on November 27th, He has taken part in the zeevarrt of ports and marinas at the tidal inlet of Punta Banda, B. In this particular building he performed Soil Mechanics studies intended for the design of the foundation and he also investigated the source of the leeonardo subsidence occurring in Mexico City.

Up to date he is recipient of over 80 diplomas and Medals and Prizes of recognition for his work of professor and professional practice, and has been involved in over various proyects in Civil Engineering in Mexico and abroad.

As a consulting engineer, he carried out Soil Mechanics surveys and performed analysis and design of structures and foundations for as many as projects, during more than 50 years. He developed and designed the foundation for the building mentioned above, and acted as consulting engineer in the design of the steel structure where the concept of controlled flexibility was applied for the first time, studding its behavior from a dinamics point of view Among these, the most important correspond to the analysis and design of a high tonnage harbor for Acapulco at the Tres Palos Lagoon, where interesting studies were made on littoral drift currents and ware action for the leonarfo of the inlet channel and the interior harbor.
