the engineering of art"
||P. Middendorp, Profound, The Netherlands
International Conference on the Application of Stress-Wave Theory To Piles,
Orlando, Sao Paulo, 2000
||In present standard
engineering practice there seems to be a big gap between engineering and
art. It is the experience of the author that engineering and art can exist
as an excellent combination. This will be illustrated by examples from
history and the author’s personal experience. One example will be treated
extensively: the continuous development of the Statnamic load testing method
as a marvelous combination of engineering and art. The start of the
Statnamic concept is described as an interaction between an artist and
engineers together with developments on the theoretical approaches and
technical applications. Further the present Statnamic state of the art will
be discussed briefly.
